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.
"This is not only a fabulous way to be funded to work at a public interest organization, but it is an excellent way to expand your network, meet like-minded people, and learn beyond what you are going to learn at your organization."- Elise Robie, 2015 Law Student Intern
