HLS auction to support public interest positions

HLS auction to support public interest positions

One of Harvard Law School’s most exciting traditions, the annual public interest auction, will be held this evening (April 6). The student-run auction, consisting of both silent and live bidding, helps support law students working in full-time public interest positions during the summer.

The title of this year’s auction is “Lights, Camera, Auction!” – a Hollywood-themed event featuring dinners with professors, a seven-course wine tasting at Radius, and a stay for two at Harrah’s in Atlantic City, N.J., among other items.

The silent auction will kick off at 5:30 p.m. in Austin Hall, followed by the live portion at 8 p.m. in Ames Courtroom. For more information, visit
