Oregon Law Students Public Interest Fund
The Oregon Law Students Public Interest Fund (OLSPIF) is a non-profit run by and for the Students of the University of Oregon School of Law. Our mission is to enable law student employment in the public interest and to support greater community access to legal representation.
Through our fundraising, we are able to award $3,000 stipends to qualified students who accept public interest positions that otherwise would be unpaid. In this way, we ensure that public interest organizations have the staff necessary to accomplish their goals, and that students receive the practical legal education they need to be strong advocates for under-represented communities. All students enrolled at UO Law who dedicate at least ten volunteer hours to OLSPIF are eligible to receive a stipend for their unpaid public interest legal work.
A Flurry of Giving begins Nov. 4!

The Oregon Law Students Public Interest Fund (“OLSPIF”) is a student run organization that raises money for summer stipends for Oregon Law students to work in otherwise unpaid public interest positions. OLSPIF-funded students assist juveniles aging out of foster care, migrant farm workers, domestic violence survivors, the elderly poor and many more! Last year, the OLSPIF auction raised record funds and awarded fourteen public service stipends!
