Public Interest Institute

Created in 2000, the Public Interest Institute of the University of Alabama School of Law is dedicated to its three-part mission:

  • To support law students at every stage of their development into public interest lawyers through the provision of learning experiences, meaningful volunteer opportunities and career counseling.
  • To expose the Law School community to the need for legal assistance among low-income and under-represented populations
  • To foster a lifelong commitment to pro bono legal service in all law students and the desire and capacity to be leaders in the field
