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, and this year’s event will be extra special as PILI celebrates its 40th Anniversary.
This year, Justice Mary K. Rochford, Chair of the Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Access to Justice, will deliver brief remarks.
The focal point of the event is the Pro Bono Recognition Roster, which recognizes law firms and corporations whose impressive pro bono contributions are making a difference in Illinois for those who need it most. 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.
