Howard Public Interest Law Society
Through activism and volunteerism, the Howard Public Interest Law Society strives to serve students within the school of law community and the greater Washington, D.C. area by confronting civil and social inequalities.
The Howard Public Interest Law Society exists to maintain awareness about important social, economic, and political issues that affect the general interest of humanity; strengthen the support of Howard University School of Law students seeking careers in public interest law; and increase financial and career opportunities for public interest law students.
Since 2004, HPILS has sponsored a yearly fundraising event to provide fellowships to first and second year law students working in unpaid positions in the public interest field during the summer.
