Public Interest Law Foundation

student organizations

Organized in 1984 by students interested in promoting the placement of law students with public interest firms and agencies, PILF has two main components. PILF Programming aims to promote public interest law-focused activities at Boston College Law School.  PILF Stipends is responsible for coordinating the monumental fundraising effort that allows Boston College Law students to receive funding for otherwise uncompensated summer positions.  Each year, PILF hosts an auction, the proceeds of which allow the organization and matching funds from other generous supporters to provide grants to students who would not otherwise be able to afford to work in these traditionally low-salaried areas. PILF also supports the Francis X. Bellotti Loan Repayment Assistance and Forgiveness Program for graduates who pursue careers in public interest law.
