PILF Auction Raises Money to Support Students Pursuing Public Interest Work

Spring 2014

Columbia Law School’s Public Interest Law Foundation hosted the 22nd annual Bid for Justice Auction this spring at Columbia University’s Roone Arledge Auditorium. Professor Robert J. Jackson Jr. and Dean of Students Michelle Greenberg-Kobrin ’99 served as auctioneers for the event. Items up for bid included several weekend getaways, a private chamber music concert performed by Professor Susan P. Sturm, and a martini-making class with Professor Philip C. Bobbitt. The auction raised approximately $65,000, which will help fund guaranteed stipends for students working in public interest summer jobs.
