Advocates for Public Interest Law (“APIL”) is a Pepperdine student organization that hosts one of the annual landmark events at the law school. The “APIL Auction” is an event that raises funds for our students working in unpaid summer public interest jobs. It is a fantastic cause, and the auction itself is great fun, too.
This year, for the first time, we are dividing the live auction and silent auction into separate components: The “live” auction will take place one week from today, and the “silent” auction will now take place online. I have the honor of serving as auctioneer for the live auction where students have the chance to bid on unique items donated by professors, like “bowling with Professor Larson” and “going on a flying trapeze with Professor Schwartz.” (Again this year, I am donating a trip to Santa Anita Race Track for a day of horse racing — last year pictured above!). The silent auction will offer a wide range of unique items such as vacation packages and sports memorabilia.
The silent auction will begin on February 26 (one week from tomorrow) and run through the School of Law Dinner on Saturday, March 8. Please consider bidding on items in the silent auction to support the good work our students will be performing this summer all over the world!
