Through the PILI Graduate Fellowship Program, new associates at Chicago law firms spend 300 hours between graduation and joining their firm working at public interest law organizations in Illinois. PILI ensures quality supervision by experienced legal aid attorneys and provides supplemental educational, networking and mentoring opportunities.
New associates who participate in PILI's Fellowship Program are connected to pro bono from the very beginning of their careers, and after joining their firms, they often continue to work with their agency on pro bono matters.
