The Public Interest Law Foundation (PILF) is a non-partisan, nonprofit student organization committed to reducing the financial barriers to working in public interest law. PILF does so by offering summer fellowships to law students who wish to work in the public sector and by educating students about the rewards of pursuing public interest careers.

Since its inception, Moritz students have worked providing a variety of services to survivors of domestic violence, children of prisoners, victims of predatory lending, migrant farm workers, Native Americans, people with developmental disabilities, and several other underserved populations. In addition, students have served the public interest in federal, state, and local government offices, including state attorneys general and the U.S. Department of Justice.
In the summer of 2010, PILF Fellows worked at a number of organizations, including: The Ohio Poverty Law Center, Legal Aid Society of Orange County, Alaska Public Defender's Agency, ABA Commission on Immigration, Advocates for Basic Legal Equality, MinKwon Center for Community Action, Equal Justice Foundation, DOJ – Criminal Division, Narcotic and Dangerous Drug Section, and Defenders of Wildlife.
