Student-organized auction to finance public interest law

An auction to raise money for public interest law projects will be held Saturday, Feb. 26, by the Stanford Public Interest Law Foundation. The eighth annual "Bid for Justice" auction begins with a silent auction at 6 p.m. at the Stanford Law School and continues with a live auction at 8 p.m. Auction items range from homemade cookies to celebrity autographs and weekend getaways to the Caribbean.

Last year's auction raised $45,000 and contributed funds to community organizations like the Teen Pregnancy Project of the Legal Aid Society of San Mateo County and the AIDS Legal Referral Panel of the San Francisco Bay Area. It also helped the Law School provide grants to students working in unpaid public interest legal positions during their summer vacations. Students organize the event.
