The Maryland Public Interest Law Project, Inc. (MPILP) is a 501(c)(3) student-run charitable organization. We are proud to be celebrating our THIRTIETH ANNIVERSARY supporting University of Maryland Law students as they serve our community through public interest legal work.
Our general goals are to educate students about the numerous opportunities to practice public interest law, to reinforce their commitment to the rewarding field of 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 communities that are underserved and underrepresented. These grants are made possible through the generosity of the Maryland Legal Service Corporation (MLSC), and the donations we receive from our Annual Goods and Services Auction. In 2017, MPILP provided a total of $92,000 in summer grants to 23 University of Maryland law students who completed 9,200 hours of public interest legal work.
