APIL Public Interest Law Fellowship

APIL provides funding to students who volunteer for summer positions in the field of public interest law. The field includes organizations that serve the needy, the environment, or other public interest-related causes. Most non-profit law firms and most public defender offices will qualify, but clerkships with prosecutors or judges do not. Because students cannot typically afford to volunteer for an entire summer, APIL, through its own fundraising endeavors and matching funds from the Dean’s Excellence fund and outside donors, provides stipends typically in the range of $2,000 and $2,500 for applicants who meet the following three criteria:

  • Pepperdine 1L or 2L Law Student in good standing
  • Interning at a qualified organization
  • Worked for an APIL project during the school year

The Public Interest Law Fellowship Application Deadline for the 2010-2011 school year is Tuesday April 11, 2010 at 3:00pm.

Below is a link to the application. Please email APIL President Dirk Sampselle with any questions at emaildirk@msn.com. Thank you for your Service.
