Stanford Public Interest Law Foundation (SPILF)

The Stanford Public Interest Law Foundation is dedicated to creating and supporting opportunities for the Public Interest Community to engage in innovative public interest work. Led entirely by students, SPILF raises money to provide financial support to members of the Stanford Law community working to further the public interest. SPILF’s goals are to:

  1. Bring legal services to those groups that would otherwise lack access to adequate legal representation;
  2. Strengthen the network of students and alumni involved with public interest;
  3. Provide training and support to students interested in pursuing public interest work at Stanford Law School and after graduation; and,
  4. Increase participation in and the visibility of public interest initiatives at Stanford.
