PILP Auction raises $41,000

The 12th annual Public Interest Law Project (PILP) Auction was held February 22 at the law school. As in past years, the event included many interesting auction items, great food and beverages, and plenty of entertainment. Best of all, proceeds from the auction benefit PILP’s summer stipend program, which enables nonprofit organizations to hire Lewis & Clark students as summer law clerks.
