Last year, the Law School launched a new tradition to celebrate our community’s commitment to serving the public interest: the Public Interest Scavenger Hunt. Four hundred students came together in teams to race each other across campus in pursuit of clues highlighting the School’s public interest past and present. Many members of our faculty and staff donated their time to serve as “live clues” during the Hunt and donated prizes for the winning teams, while generous contributions from outside sponsors supported both the event and, more importantly, the School’s Summer Public Interest Funding program.

Following on last year’s success, we are continuing the tradition this year—and could once again use your support. Specifically, you can help make this event a success in two important ways:
The Scavenger Hunt will take place on Friday, March 23rd from approximately 4:30-7:30 pm. If possible, we’d ask that faculty please avoid scheduling make-up classes during this time.
We hope that faculty and staff will consider providing clues to use during the course and/or participating as “live clues” during the hunt. The latter entails being available for the students to come “find” you (in your office) as they make their way through the course. If you are able to participate in this way, or have other public-interest themed clues to suggest, please let us know via this online form.
Thank you in advance for your help and support in making this second year of the Public Interest Scavenger Hunt an even greater success!
