The annual Public Interest Experience Auction on Feb. 27, the law school’s blowout extravaganza in support of students who take on unpaid summer internships providing legal services to under-represented members of the community, raised just shy of $22,000 this year.
Professors David S. Cohen and Donald Tibbs kicked off festivities, hyping up the crowd for a night full of audacious auctions. Hot auction items included the right to toss a cream pie in the faces of faculty, a tour of Flying Fish brewery, a cycling trip through South Jersey with Dean Roger Dennis and a roller-skating outing with Cohen, Senior Associate Dean Kevin Oates and professors Clare Coleman and Chapin Cimino.
The auction always receives a large turnout of students, faculty and staff who applaud the law school students' efforts to contribute to the public good in their summer positions. This year's event was organized by members of the Student Bar Association.
