The Initiative for Public Interest Law at Yale, Inc.
A Message from the Board
The 2019-20 IPILY board is very excited to continue the Initiative's work of supporting public interest projects through creative fundraising. We look forward to seeing you at our events!
President/Treasurer: Tomo Takaki
Events Chair: Wenqing Zhao
The Initiative for Public Interest Law at Yale is a non-profit organization that provides start-up money for projects that protect the legal rights or interests of inadequately represented groups. The Initiative funds innovative projects that may have difficulty obtaining money from other sources due to the subject matter of the project or the approach taken by the project. We fund cutting-edge projects whose successful execution might be a model for other organizations seeking new and better ways to represent clients.
The Initiative conducts several activities every year to raise money for grants. Annual fundraising events include several used book sales, the Court Classic, and the Yale Law School Formal (also known as the Prom). The Initiative also relies on donations from the legal community, Yale Law alumni, and Yale Law students to supplement its fundraising events. Donations should be sent to P.O. Box 200100, New Haven, CT 06520, and checks should be made payable to "The Initiative for Public Interest Law at Yale."
To learn more about the Initiative and our recent grant recipients, please see the tabs on the right.
