Feb. 26: Public Service Benefit

Posted on

The NYU School of Law Public Interest Law Center, the Law Alumni Association (LAA), and the Law Alumni of Color Association (LACA) invite you to the Public Service Benefit honoring NYU Law’s commitment to supporting public interest students and public service work. Join us for this celebratory and networking event on Wednesday, February 26, 2020 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in Vanderbilt Hall, Greenberg Lounge, located at 40 Washington Square South.


NYU LAW STUDENTS: For auction items available to students only, there will not be any cash bidding this year. Instead, students who RSVP and attend will receive tickets they can use to enter raffles/make non-monetary bids for experiences with NYU Law Faculty. To receive 40 tickets, you must register by Friday, February 14. To receive 30 tickets, register by Friday, February 21. Students who register any time after February 21 or attend without registering in advance will receive 20 tickets. Students must attend the Benefit and show student ID at the door to receive their tickets.


The evening kicks off with drinks and light fare. Dean Trevor Morrison, Assistant Dean Lisa Hoyes ’99, and the Law Alumni Association will confer Public Service Awards on members of the community for their exemplary commitment to public interest issues and pro bono work. This year’s PILC Public Service awardees are Sienna Fontaine ’07 and Immigrant Rights Project, and LAA Pro Bono awardee is Earl S. Ward ’85.


We will also hold a silent auction. Proceeds go towards summer funding for students who intern with public interest organizations.


Individual ticket prices are $50. Tickets for recent graduates (from class of 2010 to 2019) and graduates working in public service are $25. The Benefit is free for all current students and faculty.
