Thanks to everyone who came out for the virtual 24th Annual Chicago Law Foundation Public Interest Auction. We will update you on our final fundraising total soon!
The Chicago Law Foundation (CLF) is a student-directed, not-for profit group that awards grants to law students who devote their summers to working in the public interest. Because few public interest organizations and government agencies have the money to pay law students for summer employment, CLF assists law students who would not otherwise be able to work for such organizations.
Together with support from the Law School, CLF is now able to guarantee summer public interest funding to any second-year law student who works ten weeks in a public interest law position at a nonprofit or government agency.
CLF also proudly awards a number of bar preparation grants each year to 3L students who will begin public interest careers after graduation.
CLF's largest event is a one-night, annual auction in which our community unites to raise money for our students. The auction is made possible through the generous donations and sponsorships of law firms, businesses, and the rest of the community.
If you are interested in donating to the auction, please contact Hannah Fisher (email@example.com). The Chicago Law Foundation is a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) organization, which may allow you to receive a tax deduction with a donation.
CLF also hosts sales throughout the school year whereby students can purchase University of Chicago Law School gear not available anywhere else. For more details on the next sale, be on alert for our email notifications or check our Facebook page for more details.
