PILF Auction Draws Record Crowd

Summer 2009

More than 600 people descended on Roone Arledge Auditorium recently for the 17th annual “Bid for Justice” auction. The event’s record turnout allowed the Public Interest Law Foundation to raise a net total of $50,000. Those funds will support the Community Grants Program and the Law School’s guaranteed summer funding initiative, which provides financial support for students working at public interest organizations during the summer after their first year.
Among the unique prizes up for auction were two martini clinics with Professor Philip Bobbitt and a weekend getaway at the Nantucket home of Professors Robert and Elizabeth Scott, which went for $1,775—the highest bid of the evening.
