Support Public Interest Law Students

DePaul’s Public Interest Law Association’s Summer Scholarship Program helps hard-working and passionate students fund summer internships at community-based, pro-bono, and legal aid organizations. 

We kicked off our campaign during the Blue Demon Challenge, DePaul's annual day of giving, and we are so grateful to everyone who has already contributed! We are now excited to announce that Robin Wagner (JD '14) and her wife, Sharon Haar, have generously offered to match all gifts, dollar-for-dollar, up to $2,500! Please make your gift today and double the impact of your contribution!

Donations will provide support to students who have interests in serving the community and providing legal access to all individuals. Since legal aid organizations do not have the budget to support summer interns, your donation will give students the opportunity to explore, experience, and make a difference in a field of law that makes a world of difference for others. 

All donations are extremely appreciated!
