David J. Epstein Program in Public Interest Law and Policy (PILP)

— filed under: ,

With the ascendance of privatization, increasing global economic pressures, the rapid development of new technologies, and the growth of nongovernmental organizations, the context within which lawyers advocate for the disadvantaged and underrepresented has changed dramatically in recent years.

In response to these developments and the corresponding need for better trained public interest lawyers, in 1997, the UCLA School of Law established the David J. Epstein Program in Public Interest Law and Policy. In 2000, the Epstein Program graduated its inaugural class of twenty-four students. The David J. Epstein Program in Public Interest Law and Policy is now one of the nation’s most innovative and successful law school public interest programs.
