PILI’s Pro Bono Initiative facilitates the sharing of best practices through our pro bono resources and programming. We also provide pro bono technical consultations for law firms and corporations looking to develop or grow their pro bono programs and celebrate the life changing pro bono performed throughout Illinois.
Originally established in 1999 as the Pro Bono Initiative for the New Millennium, this program encouraged and assisted law firms and corporations in developing their pro bono programs. Today, PILI serves as a hub for pro bono within the Illinois legal community. We work collaboratively with law firms, corporations, public interest law agencies, law schools, and members of the bar and bench to increase the availability of pro bono legal services across Illinois.
If you have any questions or would like to get involved, please contact PILI Executive Director Michael G. Bergmann by email or by phone at 312-832-5129.
