The Harvard Law School Public Interest Scavenger Hunt focuses on HLS history and trivia, and also highlights alumni who have done important public interest work.
Since 1994, the law school has hosted public service events - including, from 1994 to 2016, the student-run Public Service Auction - to help support the Summer Public Interest Funding program (SPIF) at Harvard Law School, providing opportunities for students to begin their careers working in public interest law. The Harvard Law School Public Interest Scavenger Hunt, now in its third year, replaced HLS's Public Interest Auction as Harvard's primary public interest fundraising event in 2017.
This year, the Public Interest Scavenger Hunt is taking on a new focus, reviving a long-lasting HLS tradition of pledging to donate one day's work (ODW) to support the public service aspirations of HLS students. Hunt participants may pledge ODW by either make a monetary donation, or participating in a day of service with a local nonprofit. Funds raised by the Hunt will be used to help support a brand new public interest fellowship.
