Mission

Founded in 1988, PILF is a student-run, non-profit organization that promotes social justice lawyering, equal access to the law, and the empowerment of marginalized and underrepresented communities by providing pro bono clinic opportunities at local organizations, hosting lectures on key issues, and supporting students in public interest work over the summer through a grant program. PILF is dedicated to developing and supporting an ethic of service among law students as well as facilitating careers in public interest law. PILF welcomes and encourages the participation of all USC Gould School of Law students.
