About Us

The Pennsylvania Institutional Law Project's (PILP) works to ensure equal access to justice for the shocking number of indigent incarcerated and institutionalized people within our commonwealth whose civil and constitutional rights are being violated. We recognize the formidable number of barriers to resources and specialized knowledge that institutional legal issues require. Our organization was created for the purpose of providing this access and unique expertise. PILP provides civil legal assistance free of charge to over 100,000 people housed in Pennsylvania’s prisons, jails, state hospitals, and mental health facilities. Our organization is committed to ensuring that the most marginalized members of our community behind bars are afforded their constitutionally protected rights. PILP is based out of three offices in Philadelphia, Lewisburg, and Pittsburgh.
