Baltimore Region Community ProgramsTitle: Maryland Public Interest Law Project (MPILP)
Description: The Maryland Public Interest Law Project, Inc. (MPILP) is a 501(c)(3) student-run organization. Members of MPILP have worked for twenty years to increase awareness of and participation in public interest legal work. Our general goals are to educate students about opportunities to practice public interest law, to reinforce their commitment to public interest law, and to encourage the pro bono efforts of law firms.
A main focus of MPILP is raising money to provide summer grants to students working for non-profit legal agencies serving the underserved and underrepresented. For the summer
of 2006 we provided $108,000 in grants to 27 University of Maryland Law Students.
