About the Event

Among our nearly 300 guests are lawyers and legal professionals from law firms, corporations, law schools and legal aid organizations, as well as the current class of PILI Interns and Fellows. We  pay tribute to the Illinois law firms and corporations named to PILI’s  Pro Bono Recognition Roster while enjoying drinks, appetizers and excellent company. If weather permits, we then enjoy the beautiful courtyard at the Ivy Room. Proceeds from this event support the work of PILI’s Pro Bono Program.
