As summer approaches, students interested in public interest law might want to consider applying to the Ami Silverman Endowment PILF Fund.
The Ami Silverman Endowment Fund of the Loyola Law School Public Interest Law Foundation provides summer stipends of up to $1,500 to public interest law students. The fund was established to provide annual summer stipends for law students in the Loyola Law School Public Interest Law Foundation (Loyola PILF) program. The fund was made possible through the generosity of Sterling Franklin ’75, who gave the initial donation of $15,000 in 2007 (and seed funding from Loyola Law School for $10,000). Sterling has agreed to match, dollar for dollar, all donations up to $12,500 in order to increase the endowment to $50,000.
Last year, Cindy Panuco, ’09, was the first student to receive an award from the Fund. Panuco’s work in public interest has included helping domestic violence victims at the Immigration Center for Women and Children, and working on civil rights litigation at the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund.
