Public Interest Law Group Auction

In its 31st year, the Auction funds UConn's Public Interest Law Group (PILG) Fellowship Program, which provides support to students pursuing public interest law summer jobs. This affords students the opportunity to gain valuable experience by providing services to underrepresented communities in Connecticut and across the country.  In the past students have supported organizations such as the Greater Hartford Legal Aid, Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities, Connecticut Office of Public Defenders, and United Nations Refugee Agency.
