Public Interest Law Initiative

Legal Service Agency Roundtable

Whole Group

Every year, PILI invites representatives from its partner public interest law organizations to attend this program to share best practices and strategies for success. This program is part of PILI’s regular Pro Bono Roundtable Series.

Creating the Ultimate Internship and Fellowship Experience

This year’s program will feature a panel presentation with a former PILI Intern, a former PILI Fellow and two agency supervisors who will discuss how to create worthwhile experiences for Interns, Fellows and their agencies.

Topics will include:

  • Utilizing time and resources to everyone’s benefit;
  • Aiding in professional development of Interns and Fellows;
  • Engaging Interns and Fellows in volunteer or board service after their tenure has ended; and
  • Success stories and tips about post-graduate fellowships such as Equal Justice Works or Skadden Fellowships.
