Public Interest Law Center

PILC offers a wide variety of funding opportunities and career planning programs to students and alumni, resulting in the most comprehensive public service infrastructure of any law school in the nation. The culture of public service is pervasive: about half of the first-year class spends the summer working in public interest internships and hundreds of students perform public service in student-run pro bono organizations.

Founded in 1992, the Public Interest Law Center (PILC) is a national model for the promotion of public service. As a “private university in the public service,” NYU Law’s goal is for all graduates to incorporate public service into their careers. PILC not only coordinates and promotes the Law School’s public interest and government service activities but also counsels students individually on their careers.
