Attorneys and staff from Davis Levin Livingston law firm participated in the Advocates for Public Interest Law (APIL) Run for Justice 2010, which raised nearly $3,500 for the APIL summer grant program.
The ADVOCATES FOR PUBLIC INTEREST LAW is a student organization at the University of Hawai’i William S. Richardson School of Law. APIL provides grants to law students who work without pay at public interest legal organizations over the summer. These grants allow students to gain valuable experience and provide critical legal services to underrepresented groups in the community. In addition, APIL frequently brings public interest legal organizations to campus to educate law students about community needs and career opportunities.
