RALEIGH  — The Campbell Public Interest Law Students Association (CPILSA) will host its annual live auction on March 24, 2023, to raise funds for law student work stipends.   

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 donating an auction item, clicking the link below to contribute money to the CPILSA student stipend fund, or marking your calendar to bid on this year’s auction items.  Bidding will open at 8 a.m. on March 24, 2023, and close at 8 p.m.

“Whether you are an alumna/us or a member of the faculty, staff or student body, we are grateful for your help in supporting law students who choose to serve in unpaid public interest positions during the summer,” said CPILSA President Kayla Kirkman ’24.
