In the public interest

More law school students will have the opportunity to pursue pro bono and other volunteer legal opportunities during the summer thanks to a recent silent auction that raises money for a student award.

During the School of Law’s Alumni Weekend in May, the silent auction raised $10,510, including the University’s match. The money helps fund the Lisa A. Kloppenberg Public Interest Award and the Volunteer Student Law Project, which awards stipends for summer living expenses to students completing volunteer legal work.

The award was renamed in the spring in honor of outgoing School of Law Dean Lisa Kloppenberg. Today is her last day as dean.

Eight School of Law students are currently funding their summer work with Public Interest Award stipends ranging from $1,500 to $3,000. The school hopes to support more students next summer.
