What is SPIN?

Temple's Student Public Interest Network (SPIN) has been helping Temple Law students get involved in public interest legal work since 1992. Our organization achieves this goal by raising funds to provide public interest opportunities for summer public interest work, both by direct donations and through our annual online auctions.

SPIN's Mission

SPIN has three primary goals:

  1. Support a public interest community at Temple
  2. Host events and provide volunteering opportunities for students
  3. Raise money for students doing public interest work over the summer

SPIN's History

SPIN was formed in 1992 to help Temple Law students get funding to be involved in public interest legal work during their law school careers. Ever since, SPIN has sought to ensure that future students would be able to afford to do such valuable work, and to gain the rich experience it offers. Since its inception, SPIN has raised over $200,000, which has been used to make grants to students working for non-profit legal organizations during the summer. The funds are raised through the efforts of Temple Law students in a series of events that culminate with an annual auction.
