The Maryland Public Interest Law Project, Inc. (MPILP) invites members of the UMB community to its Annual Goods & Services Auction on April 13, a night of food, drinks, and bidding to continue the tradition of supporting law students in the public interest field.
MPILP raises money to fund grants for University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law students working unpaid summer internships in the public interest legal field. Since its founding in 1987, MPILP has supported hundreds of law students who would otherwise go without funding in exchange for invaluable legal experience at public interest organizations. In the summer of 2017, MPILP awarded 23 grants to law students who dedicated more than 9,200 hours of legal services to underserved communities.
