Advisors Needed for Summer Interns and Fellows

Posted on: April 9, 2018

Advisors

PILI is currently seeking Advisors for our 2018 Advising Program, which matches current Law Student Interns and Graduate Fellows with members of PILI’s Alumni Network or Board of Directors.

PILI’s Advising Program is flexible to allow individual Advisors to fit the program into their own schedule. Advisors are expected to communicate with their Advisee and meet at least twice throughout the summer. Advisors often serve as an introduction to the Illinois legal community providing career guidance, networking inroads and valuable insights. PILI will provide additional support and tips to help make the relationship as beneficial as possible. We will also host 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 below registration form before Friday, April 27th, 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, May 31st at the John Marshall Law School featuring a CLE 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 Interns and Fellows to network with PILI Alumni and Board Members. While attendance at this event is not required to participate in the Advising Program, we hope Advisors will attend.

If you have any questions or problems with the form, please contact Belinda Bing by email or by phone at 312-832-5127.

Thank you for your interest, but Advisor registration is now closed.
