PILI offers a weekly Educational Seminar Series that focuses on substantive legal topics, career development strategies and skill building relevant to public interest law. This weekly lunchtime series starts in early June and runs through the beginning of August. Starting in the spring, you can RSVP for these Seminars at the links below. Attendance counts towards your 300 hour requirement. We hope you will be able to join us!
- For Fellows outside of Chicago: PILI webcasts most of our seminars. More information will be available soon.
- We also maintain an online archive of past seminars, which can be especially useful for Fellows serving in the fall or spring.
