About Oregon Law Students Public Interest Fund

“Snowflakes are one of nature’s most fragile things, but just look at what they can do when they stick together.” Author unknown.

olspif_flurry_of_givingOLSPIF will sell snowflakes through Tuesday, November 25! During the long Thanksgiving weekend, a team of OLSPIF Board Members and volunteers will decorate the Oregon Law Commons with your snowflakes and bright lights!

All proceeds go to funding summer stipends for law students in otherwise unpaid public service positions. Stipends fund students to assist the elderly poor, domestic violence survivors, juveniles aging out of foster care, migrant farm workers and more. Last year, OLSPIF awarded a record number of stipends — please join our efforts to help vulnerable individuals receive access to justice! Like snowflakes sticking together, look at what we can do for people who need our help by combining our efforts!

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 public interest work and to support greater community access to legal representation.

Through our fundraising, we are able to award $4,000 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 apply for a stipend for their unpaid public interest legal work.

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!
