PILAR Holds Sixth Annual Auction

This week Public Interest Legal Advocates of Regent (PILAR) held its sixth annual auction to promote law-related interest in the public sector and provide grants for students who will intern in unpaid public interest positions.

In the past PILAR has been able to provide up to $1000 in summer stipends per applicant through its assistance programs. The proceeds of the auction make up the majority of these substantial grants.

PILAR’s desire to foster support for those desiring to serve the “least of these,” at what is often a personal financial cost, is a trademark of the Regent Law community. “Encouraging one another in the mindset of service and building a network to support Christian lawyers who truly want to get “dirty” but don’t usually get paid much for it is what this [auction] is really all about,” said Amy Gibbs, this year’s Auction Coordinator.

Every PILAR member that applies for a grant was expected to solicit ten items from the community for auction. This year, hot items were Bar Preparatory courses, a portable personal dry cleaner, beautiful Amish quilts, and private surfing lessons.
