Fifteen-Year Anniversary for Equal Justice America
September 20, 2008
In 1990, when Dan Ruben was a second year student at Pace University Law School he spotted a small item in the New York Times about a student-run program at NYU Law School. Students were raising money to help their fellow students work during the summer in public interest law. There was no such organization at Pace so Ruben started one, the Public Interest Law Scholarship Organization (PILSO), which continues to thrive at Pace today.
