RALEIGH — The Campbell Public Interest Law Students Association (CPILSA) will host its annual live auction from Saturday, April 13, to Saturday, April 20, to raise funds for law student work stipends this summer.   

This year, auction items include a one-year subscription to MasterClass, golfing at Keith Hills, card games, lunches with professors and staff, a Lululemon fit session and outfit, and more, organizers say.

CPILSA stipends are awarded annually to qualified law students who accept unpaid summer internships in public interest organizations. These students serve the public by doing legal work for clients who are poor, indigent, or in acute need of legal assistance due to their age, mental condition, or physical condition.  

These stipends allow students to accept these unpaid positions and serve the community by offsetting a portion of their living expenses. Last year, CPILSA was able to raise enough funds to award four $2,000 summer stipends. To continue this trend of supporting public interest, CPILSA needs your help, organizers say. 

Please consider bidding on an auction item or clicking the link below to contribute money to the CPILSA student stipend fund.  Bidding will open at 8 a.m. on April 13 and close at 8 p.m. on April 20.
