About the event:

This special event was held in place of PILI’s Annual Awards Luncheon in 2017 to mark PILI’s 40th Anniversary. Our Annual Awards Luncheon brings together over 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. As with the luncheon, our 40th Anniversary Awards Gala featured several awards to acknowledge those whose work epitomizes the ideals of service, fairness, and justice, including the Distinguished Service Award, the Pro Bono Initiative Award, and two PILI Alumni Awards. The event also featured a conversation with Christina M. Tchen.
