Public Interest Law Society Summer Grants: PILS Auction
Each year through the student fundraising efforts of the Public Interest Law Society (PILS) at the annual Public Service Auction, Loyola offers grants to support students who wish to do public interest legal work during the summer months. The Auction is the biggest student event of the year, typically raising over $20,000. Notably, the PILS Auction is a unique event for Loyola because it is entirely student run and student organized.

Electronic Communication Issues in Professional Responsibility Law
