- Law School Public Interest Auction – Thursday, Feb. 7 at 7 p.m. at the Eagles Club to raise support for public interest grant recipients to provide much-needed staff support to organizations serving the disadvantaged and addressing public interest issues.

PIN is seeking donations of auction items, such as tickets to sporting events, gift baskets, art work, gift certificates to restaurants and stores, sports equipment, canoe trips, and others.
