MPILP Auction at Maryland Law - March 10th

Allow me a brief sojourn to the dark side as I shill for some guilt-ridden liberals:

On Saturday March 10th at the University of Maryland School of Law (my alma mater), the Maryland Public Interest Project (MPILP) – will be celebrating its 20th year with their annual auction. The silent Auction begins at 6PM and is followed by a Live Auction. Admission is only $25 in Advance ($35 at the Door) and includes Drinks (yes, Beer), heavy Hors D’oeuvres and Desserts.

I have attended many of these and have always enjoyed them. There is usually a decent array of items up for bid so you can get some bargains. And if you haven’t been to the newly refurbished Law School (500 West Baltimore Street) – well, you might as well see your tax dollars in action. The historic Edgar Allen Poe gravesite is also on the grounds.

MPILP raises money to help provide for summer grants for law school students to work for agencies and non-profits in a legal environment. Even though I believe a lot of those agencies and non-profits do a lot to muck up life for the rest of us, I also believe it is important that these students get a chance to work in such an arena if that is their desire. Help them get it out of their system; after all, better they do it now – as law students – rather than later when as real lawyers they could really wreak some havoc.

Hope to see you there.
