Each year, PILI hosts a full-day orientation for PILI Interns and Fellows to kick-off the summer. This program serves as an introduction to the Illinois legal aid community and some of the struggles your clients face as well as the impact you can have. We also focus on developing practical skills that will be useful this summer and throughout your career.
PILI’s Law Student Intern and Graduate Fellow Orientation experience a tour of the Richard J. Daley Center, where many Interns and Fellows will go to civil court over the summer, as well as explore the Cook County Law Library and offices of the Clerk of the Circuit Court.
PILI’s Annual Pro Bono Reception celebrates the inspiring and life-changing pro bono work being done in Illinois through effective pro bono programs, innovative partnerships, and the unwavering dedication of individual attorneys and legal professionals. This event also supports the work of PILI’s Pro Bono Initiative Program.
PILI’s Annual Awards Luncheon brings together nearly 500 members of the Illinois legal community every year to celebrate the very best aspects of the legal profession: the generosity, expertise and commitment of the countless lawyers, law students, legal professionals, law firms and corporations who dedicate themselves to providing legal assistance to those in need.
