2021 Virtual Auction & Social Event

The School of Law’s Buffalo Public Interest Law Program (BPILP) is excited to announce a virtual silent auction and a live Zoom event where we will celebrate our student’s work this past year!

Tuesday, April 27, 2021
6:00 - 8:00 p.m. (EDT) | via Zoom

There Is No Justice Without Equal Access” is BPILP’s motto, and this is a reminder that our summer BPILP Fellowships are needed now more than ever.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our annual auction will be held “virtually” this year, however, the work of our BPILP Summer Fellows continues as they pursue summer public interest positions and access to justice within our community. With the money raised from the auction, BPILP provides fellowships to law students who spend their summers working in the public interest. The agencies where our fellows work are often understaffed and need additional assistance, but are unable to pay students. BPILP fellowships "bridge the gap" and allow students to work in the public interest while receiving support from a summer stipend.

In an effort to encourage attendance at this virtual event, BPILP has decided to forego tickets and make this event free to all. In lieu of ticket costs, BPILP would greatly appreciate a donation in any amount.
