PILP is a student-run organization at Lewis & Clark Law School that was founded in 1990. Since its inception, the organization has helped 260 students finance legal public interest work at no cost to their employers – a total of more than 100,000 hours of legal work by PILP stipend recipients. PILP also has a broad reach. While about half of the PILP stipend recipients over the past 22 years have worked for host organizations right here in Oregon, they also work all over the country, and around the world. PILP has given stipends to students working as far away as The Hague and Yap, Micronesia. In its history, PILP has raised $1,143,073 and given out $916,156 in summer stipends.
