The Suffolk Public Interest Law Group (SPILG) Fellowship program provides funding for students working in otherwise unpaid summer internships with non-profit and government organizations. The purpose of the fellowship program is to support Suffolk Law students dedicated to public service while providing an invaluable service to non-profit and government organizations and the communities they serve. The number of fellowships awarded each year varies but fellowships are typically available for approximately 60 students each summer.
