Connecticut Public Interest Law Journal
The Connecticut Public Interest Law Journal (CPILJ) is a student-run scholarly law review at the University of Connecticut School of Law.  CPILJ's first volume was published in 2001 with the primary purpose of furthering discussion of the legal aspects of public interest, primarily in the state of Connecticut.
CPILJ publishes works in print as well as online. Articles are authored by professors, judges, practitioners, and students.
Every fall, CPILJ hosts a symposium on important issues related to public interest law. During this event, practicing attorneys, professors, judges, and other professionals speak in small panels on a certain subject and take questions from audience members. The 2013 symposium was titled, "The Palliative Use of Marijuana: Demystifying Connecticut's Policy Concerning Medical Marijuana." Past symposia have been themed: "The Future of Campaign Financing in America" (2012), "The Role of Mental Illness in Defining Guilt" (2011), "Undocumented Immigrants in the Workplace: Exploring Rights and Reforms of America's Shadow Labor Force" (2010), and "The Road to Prison Reform: Treating the Causes and Conditions of Our Overburdened System" (2009).
