Why should I donate to PILP?
"My PILP grant allowed me to spend my 2012 summer working as a Legal Education intern for the Connecticut Women's Education and Legal Fund (CWEALF) in Hartford, Conn., a statewide tax exempt organization dedicated to enhancing the personal and professional lives of women, minorities, and people of low income in Connecticut through advocacy and activism. I am extremely grateful to PILP and the entire Quinnipiac University School of Law community for providing me the funds that enabled me to spend a summer at this tremendous organization."

"For the 2013 summer, my PILP grant provided me with the opportunity to work as an intern with The Children's Law Center in Hartford, Conn., which is a non-profit organization that works to protect indigent children involved in high-conflict family court cases. Through this experience, I was able to gain invaluable hands-on experience within the family court setting and wouldn't have been able to do so without the aid that PILP provided. I am incredibly appreciative of PILP and Quinnipiac School of Law's continued generosity and dedication to the public interest sector."

"My PILP grant allowed me to working as a certified legal intern in the Family Law department at New Haven Legal Assistance Association during the 2013 summer. NHLAA is a non-profit organization that works to protect and advocate for indigent clients in the greater New Haven area. Without my PILP grant I would not have the hands on experience working one-on-one with clients in the family law field. I am incredibly thankful for the experiences I was able to have due to the PILP grant."
