20th Annual UBSPI Auction

Location:
John and Frances Angelos Law Center
Room:
Moot Court
Description:

The 20th Annual UBSPI Auction will be held on Friday, February 28 from 6:30-9:30. Registration for this event is available through the University of Baltimore Foundation.

The University of Baltimore Students for Public Interest (UBSPI) aims to inform UB law students about the breadth of public interest law and to offer them the opportunity to experience this legal field first-hand. For more than a decade, UBSPI has inspired students to pursue careers dedicated to serving the less fortunate and underprivileged in an effort to obtain equal representation in the justice system.

Understanding the financial challenges that students committed to public interest law face, UBSPI – in conjunction with the law school and the Maryland Legal Services Corporation – provides funding to UB law students to intern during the summer at public interest organizations that otherwise could not afford to compensate them for their work. 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.
