2019 Public Interest Auction

April 2019


The Texas Tech Law Public Interest Auction had another successful year. On Thursday, March 21, the Lubbock Area Bar Association and Texas Tech law community joined together and got into the bidding spirit.

The public interest auction raised over $13,000 in scholarships to support Texas Tech law students serving as unpaid summer interns with public defenders, nonprofits, district attorneys, and other public-interest employers. This exceeds the amount that was raised last year.

A huge congratulations to Texas Tech law faculty members Tracy Pearl, Alex Pearl, Alyson Drake, Brie Sherwin, and Rob Sherwin, who spearheaded the public interest auction along with the 1L auction team of Avery Aiken, Clay Elliott, Avery Rios, and Michael Samaniego.
