Pitt Law's Public Interest Organization
The Pitt Legal Income Sharing Foundation, PLISF, is a student-run non-profit organization at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law which is dedicated to helping students finance their summer public interest legal internships. PLISF carries out this mission by sponsoring fundraising events throughout the year and distributing the proceeds as scholarships to first- and second-year law students. In past years, scholarships have been given to students working at various organizations, including national civil rights organizations, public defenders, attorneys general and non-profits.
PLISF members participate in charity donations and community service activities. In addition, the organization holds an annual career panel to promote student involvement in public interest careers.
Because PLISF is a tax-exempt charitable 501(c)(3) organization, donations may be tax-deductible.
