There are two new easy ways to support PILF! Find out how to add us on Amazon Smile and Kroger Rewards in just a few clicks:
The greater legal community is an important part of the work of PILF! Providing PILF students with great opportunities to help exercise their growing legal skills through volunteer work and hiring our fellows are just a few hands-on ways the legal community can help the mission of PILF.
Donations of auction items, monetary donations, or even funding a full fellowship are some ways the legal community can help PILF through donations.
Support Student Legal Work
Providing PILF students with opportunities to do legal work serving the public interest is one of the best ways the legal community can support PILF!
PILF would like to thank those in the legal community who have supported the work of the organization:
Columbus Bar Foundation – Columbus Bar Foundation Trustee Judge Carrie Glaeden presented a check for $3,500 from the Marsha Schermer Memorial Fund of the Foundation to Melissa Salamon, Vice President of Education, Public Interest Law Foundation (PILF), to support the OSU Moritz PILF summer fellowship program. The grant will be used to provide a stipend for a Moritz law student who will be serving in public interest law during the summer of 2013. The Schermer Fund provides financial support to law students who are committed to public service and has dispersed over $165,000 since its inception.
Faculty and Staff
Faculty and staff support plays a vital role in PILF’s success in providing fellowships to Moritz students working in the public interest. Since many of Moritz’s faculty and staff have had former careers in the public interest, their insights and guidance are an essential link in fulfilling PILF’s goals and those of the students we support. Some of the other ways faculty and staff support PILF:
Faculty and staff are among the most active contributors to the annual PILF Auction, serving as auctioneers and energetic bidders. Volunteering their time to help and attend the PILF Auction adds to the enjoyment and fun that everyone has at our annual Auction.
Whether donating an evening dinner with students, an autographed book they’ve authored, or simply attending PILF events, the faculty and staff at Moritz contribute much to PILF’s success.
There are lots of ways students can support PILF at Moritz.
PILF is one of the largest and most active student-run organizations at Moritz College of Law. PILF needs a large number of volunteers to help run the numerous activities we hold in order to raise money. Students can volunteer at Trivia, Pong for PILF, Supplement Sales, and the Annual Auction and Gala, just to name a few.
PILF has numerous opportunities throughout the year for students to help PILF financially, including the supplement sale, the annual Auction, and Pong for PILF.
The continuing success of PILF relies upon the outstanding leadership of the students who direct it each year. Being a PILF Board member provides a unique opportunity to manage a remarkable student organization that is also a non-profit. Students who lead PILF also earn hours toward a designation of Public Interest Fellow at graduation.
