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.

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.

 In 2016, we were honored to have Illinois Supreme Court Justice Anne Burke as our special guest speaker.

Congratulations and our heartfelt thanks to the 46 law firms and corporations named to PILI’s 2016 Pro Bono Recognition Roster whose substantial pro bono contributions are making a difference in addressing the legal needs of low-income and underrepresented Illinoisans through pro bono legal assistance.
