PILI's Law Student Internship Program connects law students from across the country with legal service agencies in Illinois. Interns work 400 hours full-time during the summer or 200 hours part-time during the school year, with PILI ensuring quality supervision by experienced agency attorneys, and providing extra educational, networking and mentoring opportunities.
Through this program, PILI helps our partner agencies increase their impact while also helping you, our Interns, develop your legal and client interaction skills, build your professional networks, and strengthen your commitment to public interest law and service.
"Out of the several legal jobs I've had, my PILI Internship has been the most hands-on. I gained skills that will give me a leg up in the post-law school job hunt."- 2013 PILI Intern
