We love BPILP!

Buffalo Public Interest Law Program

The Buffalo Public Interest Law Program raises money to support students who work in the public interest each summer during law school. 

BPILP also hosts networking events for students to meet public-interest employers from neighboring communities. The organization is affiliated with Lawyers for Learning and participates in the Student Bar Association’s Volunteer Service Days.
