Founded in 2007, the Los Angeles Public Interest Law Journal (LAPILJ) is the only organization dedicated to the documentation, dissemination, and promotion of public interest scholarship by practitioners and advocates in Los Angeles.  We are an independent collaboration of law students from Southwestern, Loyola, Pepperdine, UCLA, and USC who seek to provide a local forum for law students, practitioners, and community members to share and generate ideas, strategies, and research that promote social justice.

LAPILJ strives to support local social justice movements by hosting symposiums, publishing and disseminating scholarly literature that is helpful to the public interest practitioner, and providing opportunities for discussion and collaboration among the diverse activities and advocates in the Southland.
