Below is the complete list of the 26 legal service agencies in Illinois that have been approved to participate in PILI’s Law Student Internship Program. Please do not contact the agency directly to apply for a PILI Internship as all applications must be made through PILI’s online application system. Most positions are located in the Chicago area, though we currently fund one Internship in Peoria, IL and one in Champaign, IL.
In order to apply for a specific Internship position, you will need to register on llinoisProBono.org before you can submit your application. There is an approval process for IllinoisProBono.org that can take up to 24 hours (longer on weekends and holidays); it is therefore recommended that applicants complete this registration prior to the first day of their application period. After registering and receiving approval, you may apply online.
Apply early! As each agency completes its hiring, they will be closed in our online application system and no longer visible to applicants. Depending on when you apply, you may not find all of the agencies listed here in the online application system.
