Sponsorship

Please consider sponsoring the 2018 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.

*If you choose to become a Platinum-level sponsor, a WLSA or PILF scholarship will be named after your organization (ex. the James & Johnson Scholarship). The named scholarship period will last one summer cycle. Sponsors will receive information about the student recipient prior to the summer experience and then get a report from the student after the summer position is completed. Sponsors will not have input regarding who receives the scholarship and where the student spends their summer. We are happy to share WLSA and PILF scholarship application requirements and evaluation criteria upon request.
