Public Interest Leadership Board

The Public Interest Leadership Board (PILB) provides an opportunity for outstanding students to play a key role in fostering the public interest mission at the School of Law. It is a student-run leadership board comprised of a dynamic group of Miami Law students dedicated to public service, including but not limited to HOPE Summer Fellows, project leaders and Miami Scholars.

PILB members design and implement a wide variety of public interest programs and serve as the center-point of HOPE activities for the law school.
