about the breadth of public-interest law and to offer them the opportunity to experience this legal field first hand. For more than two decades, UBSPI has inspired students to pursue careers dedicated to serving underprivileged populations in an effort to obtain equal representation in the justice system.
Understanding the financial challenges that students committed to public interest law face, UBSPI, along with the School of Law and the Maryland Legal Services Corporation, provides stipends to student fellows working at public-interest organizations that otherwise could not afford to compensate them for their work. Organizations where students have been placed include Legal Aid, House of Ruth, Advancement Project, the U.S. Coast Guard, the Homeless Persons Representation Project and many others.
Each year, UBSPI hosts an auction to fund grants for UB law students interested in working at these organizations. Previous grants have allowed students to work at places such as Legal Aid, House of Ruth, Advancement Project, HERO, Public Justice Center and the Homeless Persons Representation Project.
