The PILC is a student-run organization dedicated to maximizing the school's ability to serve public interests and serving as a clearinghouse for UGA's many public interest programs. PILC organizes a number of different service opportunities, including Community Service days each semester and an Alternative Spring Break Trip. PILC also organizes events focusing on career development and guidance for students considering working in the public interest sector.

    By facilitating cooperation between the many excellent groups already in place as well as helping new students find groups they like and consolidating a calendar of public interest events, we hope to help as many students as possible get involved in rewarding, helpful work during their time here at UGA Law!
