OLSPIF continues to grow every year, and now regularly provides summer stipends for over a dozen students doing public service legal work. This year, OLSPIF awarded stipends to 14 students.
This past summer, students worked in a wide range of nonprofits. Placement organizations included Lane County Legal Aid, Access the Law, Oregon Innocence Project, ELAW, and the South African Human Rights Commission. Profiles of all stipend recipients are available online here.
In an era when fewer paid summer legal positions are available to students, OLSPIF –funded work has become an important option for many students, particularly 1L students. Mark your calendar for Friday, February 24, 2017, for this year’s OLSPIF Dinner & Auction and help us grow public interest opportunities for students.
