On Aug. 24th, more than 150 law students donated their Saturday morning to give back to the Baton Rouge community during LSU Law’s annual Fall Day of Service.
The students divided up their service among 11 sites all across Baton Rouge. Jobs jobs included washing the World War II fighter ship USS Kidd, working with animals at the Capital Animal Alliance, helping the Baton Rouge Food Bank, and prepping local schools for the beginning of the start of class.
“This was a remarkable effort for a single club to organize, and PILS is thankful to all of its participants for making the event possible,” 2L student and PILS Publicity Chair Samantha Kennedy said.
The Public Interest Law Society (PILS) is a student-run organization that strives to foster student interest and action in the public interest community. Its mission is to provide like-minded students an opportunity to gain hands-on 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 the immediate community and beyond.
