A little LOVE goes a long way!

Help us reach our goal of $25,000 to support Public Interest Law Grants for students this summer.

Last year, 23 well-deserved students were awarded grants and participated in full-time, summer clerkships with government agencies and nonprofit organizations that offer free or lost-cost assistance to underserved, marginalized communities.

Your donation, great or small, can help us create even more opportunities for our students. 

Summer grants are crucial to students and alleviate the financial burden our students face during their academic career at Southwestern. Your support will help offset costs for student housing for the summer, food, transportation and professional attire during the clerkship.

The Public Interest Law Committee (PILC) Summer Grant program plays a key role in Southwestern's overall commitment to preparing its graduates to become passionate advocates dedicated to improving our legal system and the lives of the people they serve.

On behalf of our students at Southwestern, THANK YOU for supporting the Public Interest Law Summer Grant program.

Please support students like Maria Lianne Urriza, 2L Day Program Student

As a grant recipient last summer, I’m incredibly appreciative of the skills I gained working with the Elder Law and Disability Rights Center. I was granted the opportunity to meet a variety of clients who all had children who needed assistance to receive more and/or better accommodations from their child’s school district.

It felt very fulfilling to serve people from the disabled community as it is a community I identify with myself.
