Public Interest Law Summer Scholarship Challenge

Though this campaign has come to an end, you can still support this cause by clicking here! Thank you for your support!


Support the Public Interest Law Summer Scholarship Challenge to provide summer scholarships for two College of Law public interest summer interns. Any gift made to the challenge will be matched by alumna Robin B. Wagner (JD '14) and her wife, Sharon H. Haar, dollar for dollar, up to $5,000!

Partner with DePaul’s Public Interest Law Association (PILA) to empower law students participating in unpaid summer internships with community-based, pro bono and legal aid organizations. Donations directly support these students to meet basic costs of living while allowing them to gain legal training that can be used to affect justice in our community and the world. Through these opportunities, students are prepared and inspired to continue serving the community throughout their legal careers.
