What is The Public Interest Law Society?

Nova Southeastern University Law's Public Interest Law Society is a student-run organization founded in 1994 to promote public interest legal employment opportunities and to overcome the economic barriers that confront future public interest lawyers. The organization is also involved in a number of public service and law school projects including Canned Immunity (providing food for the needy), community service projects to help the needy, and the national public interest law conference held each October in Washington, D.C.

If you are interested in becoming a member, you may e-mail Lily Schreiber. All students are invited to join. NSU credit card memberships dues LINK.



The Public Interest Law Society's major fundraiser is the annual Auction held each Spring. The money raised by the Auction sponsors students who choose to take non-paying public interest positions during the summer. All non-graduating students are eligible to apply for these fellowships, which are awarded each year. The Public Interest Law Society is the ONLY student organization that gives all the money it raises back to the students.
