    The 26th Annual Brooklyn Law Students for the Public Interest (BLSPI) Auction benefits the BLSPI Fellowship Program.

    BLSPI is a student-run, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization at Brooklyn Law School that encourages and enables student participation in public interest and public service legal work.

    BLSPI provides both legal and non-legal opportunities for engagement at Brooklyn Law School. We are committed to finding opportunities for students to explore public interest legal careers, which we facilitate through a mentorship program for incoming students and by bringing in lawyers and alumni to speak and interact with students about their practice through our programming. We also provide much-needed funding through fellowships for summer internships for first- and second-year students, as well as bar course grants for graduating students pursuing public interest legal careers.

    Additionally, BLSPI offers a common tie between the many on-campus pro bono organizations and the Brooklyn community. We organize a number of charity drives throughout the year, often working with other student groups, including: blood drives, canned food drives, clothing drives, Halloween candy drives for children living in domestic violence shelters, and voter registration drives. BLSPI will also organize a number of days of service this coming year.
