About PILC

Our Goal

The Public Interest Law Center (PILC) is the headquarters for public service law at NYU. We are interested in supporting every student in doing public service, whether for a summer, a clinic experience, or a lifetime. PILC provides counseling on internships and post-graduate jobs, supports students applying for fellowships, hosts lectures and programs in public interest law, runs scholarship programs, works closely with public interest student groups, creates publications to inform students about public service careers, and acts as a sounding board for student, alumni, faculty, and administrators about public service careers.

PILC’s goal is to encourage all NYU Law students to incorporate public service into their careers.
