PILI is thrilled to announce that it has received a $15,000 grant from the Illinois Equal Justice Foundation (IEJF) to support PILI’s efforts to provide Self-Help Legal Assistance through several projects.
PILI is extremely grateful for increased support from the Lawyers Trust Fund (LTF) that provides foundational support for PILI’s Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committees.
Each year, PILI holds several Pro Bono Forums and Roundtables to bring together pro bono leaders from law firms, corporations, legal service agencies and law schools.
