19th annual Public Service Auction raises funds for public interest summer jobs

The Public Interest Law Center’s 19th annual Public Service Auction on February 25 will help fund Public Interest Summer Funding Grants for 1L and 2L students who pursue summer public interest work. Members of both the NYU Law and wider communities donate many items to the live and silent auctions each year. Students themselves solicit donations and run the event. Among this year’s auction highlights:

  • Certificates for $1,750 in tuition credit for BARBRI bar exam preparation courses
  • Four Premium Delta Skybox Yankees tickets
  • Use for one weekend of the Woodstock home of Professor Sylvia Law '68 (formerly the home of a member of the Band)
  • Dinner for four at the Harvard Club with Professor H. David Rosenbloom
  • Canine therapy and ice cream with Professor Erin Murphy and her dog, Normandy
  • A night out at the theater: a $300 gift certificate for theater tickets, and another $300 gift certificate for BR Guest Hospitality (good for numerous restaurants, bars, and hotels)
  • 42-inch Westinghouse TV set
  • Sci-fi/fantasy movie or TV night with a 1L geek providing entertaining commentary
  • Gift certificate for a psychic reading—know when you're going to be cold-called
  • Customized silver hula hoop with purple, black, and green swirls—hips don’t lie under oath
