I started my current job on October 1 in Oakland, California. For the next year I will work at the Public Interest Law Project (PILP), a small but growing nonprofit that serves as a state support center for California’s legal services programs. PILP engages in impact litigation and legislative advocacy statewide on behalf of people receiving public benefits, and people who live in affordable housing.
In the first two-plus months here at PILP, I have assisted the six attorneys in researching, drafting, and editing briefs, orders, and declarations, as well as a petition for review filed at the California Supreme Court. I have attended training programs for young public interest lawyers in San Jose, Fresno, and at a convention/meeting center in the Santa Cruz mountains.
