Welcome to PILI's 2022 Annual Pro Bono Reception!

PILI’s Annual Pro Bono Reception celebrates the inspiring and life-changing pro bono work being done in Illinois through effective pro bono programs, innovative partnerships, and the unwavering dedication of individual attorneys and legal professionals. This year, the Annual Pro Bono Reception was held on June 15th and we recorded the program so that all of our supporters who could not join us in person would still be able to see what happened.

The video will premiere at noon CT on June 16th. If you join the premiere in progress, you will not be able to go back or advance forward. Once the premiere has concluded. the video will be available for viewing at any time and you will be able to rewind, forward or pause. The run time is just under 30 minutes. We hope you enjoy being part of the celebration!
