The Maryland Public Interest Law Project, Inc. (MPILP) is a 501(c)(3) student-run organization which has for twenty years worked to increase awareness of and participation in public interest legal work.
Our general goals are to educate students about opportunities to practice public interest law, to reinforce their committment to public interest law, and to encourage the pro bono efforts of law firms.
A main focus of MPILP is raising money to provide summer grants to students working for non-profit legal agencies serving the underserved and underrepresented. In 2012, MPILP provided a total of $128,000 in summer grants to 32 University of Maryland Law students to pursue public interest work.
