OLSPIF announces 2014 stipend recipients
Thanks to the generous support from Oregon Law alumni, friends, faculty, staff, students, and fundraising, the Oregon Law Students Public Interest Fund (OLSPIF) was able to award 12 stipends of $4,000 each to qualified students who accepted public interest positions that otherwise would be unpaid. Stipend recipients agree to work 400 hours in legal positions during a ten-week period, supervised by attorneys. The 2014 stipend recipients will work for a range of legal employers, including legal aid and public defender offices, outdoor programs, and workers and children’s advocacy offices, among others.
