The Holiday Season will be a bit brighter for 60 Baton Rouge-area children thanks to the generosity of LSU Law Center students who participated in this year’s Angel Tree Collection. Coordinated by the Public Interest Law Society (PILS), law students purchased gifts that will be distributed to needy children during the holiday season as part of the Baton Rouge Bar Association’s Holiday Star Project.
The Public Interest Law Society is a student run organization that strives to foster student interest and action in the public interest community. Their mission is to provide like-minded students an opportunity to gain hands-on legal experience through exposure to areas of the law that aid the public. PILS provides pro bono and community service activities, educational lectures, and a public interest career counselor to raise awareness of issues faced by our immediate community and beyond.
