Public Interest Law Initiative

Advisors Needed for Summer Interns and Fellows

Posted on: April 11, 2017


PILI is currently seeking Advisors for our 2017 summer class of Law Student Interns and Graduate Fellows. PILI’s Advising Program matches current Interns and Fellows with members of PILI’s Alumni Network or Board of Directors who can provide career guidance, networking inroads, and a personal introduction to the Illinois legal community. This is a popular and valuable component of the PILI Internship & Fellowship experience, and we couldn’t do it without volunteer Advisors.

Register as an Advisor

PILI’s Advising Program is flexible to allow individual Advisors to fit the program into their own schedule. We do hope Advisors will meet with their PILI Interns or Fellows at least twice within the summer. PILI provides additional support and tips to help make the relationship as beneficial as possible, including hosting several opportunities throughout the summer for the Advisor and Advisee to connect.

If you are interested in serving as an Advisor, please take a moment to complete the brief registration form before Friday, April 28th, which allows us to make matches based on area-of-practice, alma maters and other factors such as relationship with one of PILI’s Participating Agencies.

PILI will be hosting an event on Thursday, June 1st at the John Marshall Law School featuring a CLE on the Art of Networking for Attorneys from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m., followed by a networking reception from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. The reception will mark the end of our full-day Intern & Fellow Orientation and serves to both celebrate the start of our summer programs and provide an opportunity for Advisors to meet their Advisees, as well as other Interns and Fellows. While attendance at this event is not required to participate in the Advising Program, we hope Advisors will attend.

If you have any questions, please contact Brent Page by email or by phone at 312-832-5128.
