Column: UNC Law devalues public interest work

"There are many factors that must go into budgetary decisions, some of which are indisputably valid. But public interest work is constantly devalued. It is devalued economically, in how different legal institutions are funded. It is devalued politically, in how public defenders and legal services are not invested in. It is devalued in labor, down to the extreme pay gap present even in summer internships."

So when it stalls on accessibility, racial justice initiatives, financial aid or paying reasonable wages to all of its workers, it is clear it simply does not care. It is time for UNC to put action behind its promises and make this campus actually accessible for all of its students."
