Please consider sponsoring the 2017 Jackie Macaulay Auction!

A quarter of UW law grads last year went into public interest, government, or clerkships. The summer positions that help students prepare for those jobs are typically low or un-paid. In order to help students in public interest, PILF and WLSA offer scholarships each year. The Jackie Macaulay Auction allows PILF and WLSA to raise money for these scholarships and to encourage students to continue their work in public interest law.  We refuse to let financial constraints keep talented students from pursuing their careers public interest.

The event is not possible without the generous support of local business and law firms throughout Wisconsin. As a 100% student-organized and student-run event, we largely depend on sponsors to help make this event a success.
