Georgetown Law created the Public Interest Law Scholars (PILS) program for law students who want to dedicate most or all of their careers to public service. This program helps public interest law students financially and developmentally by fostering a law school culture that supports and grows public interest lawyers.

PILS is non-partisan and welcomes diverse views from participants with a range of political philosophies. PILS provides:

  • Faculty Advisors
  • Professional Mentors
  • Community of public interest-focused legal scholars
  • Summer work stipends
  • Enriched educational opportunities
  • Career counseling
