Bajowala_Reena-_COLORPILI is happy to welcome Reena Bajowala of Jenner & Block LLP to our Board of Directors! Reena is a partner in the firm’s Complex Commercial Litigation Practice and a member of the Class Action Litigation, ERISA Litigation and Technology Litigation groups.

Reena bears the special distinction of being not just a PILI Alumna, but a “double PILI,” having served as both a PILI Intern (at CVLS) and a PILI Fellow (at the ACLU of Illinois). She is active on PILI’s Alumni Network Leadership Council, and maintains a significant pro bono practice, focusing on political asylum and human trafficking matters in particular among a wide range of issues. She is additionally involved in several other nonprofit organizations, including the National Immigrant Justice Center, the North American South Asian Bar Association, and the Indian-American Bar Association (IABA), as well as Jenner’s Women’s Forum Steering Committee and Diversity & Inclusion Committee.

Reena joins PILI’s Board following the departure of Andrew Vail, also a partner at Jenner & Block and also a PILI Alumnus, who had served as a Director for PILI since 2010. PILI welcomes Reena and thanks Andrew for his years of dedicated service.

PILI’s Board of Directors is currently led by President Lee Ann Russo of Jones Day, and by Vice President Richard F. O’Malley, Jr. of Sidley Austin LLP. See for a full list of all of PILI’s Board Members »
