PILI is excited to welcome four new members to the Alumni Network Leadership Council. The Alumni Council is a group of PILI Alumni committed to staying connected to PILI and public interest law, and to giving back to their community. These attorneys previously participated in PILI’s Law Student Internship or Graduate Fellowship Programs, and have maintained active public interest law or pro bono legal careers since.
- Reginald Cloyd was a 2013 Intern at Land of Lincoln Legal Assistance Foundation in Champaign. He graduated from the University of Illinois Law School in 2015, and is now working as an associate in the insurance practice at Tressler LLP.
- Emily Coffey is a double PILI, having worked as a 2013 Intern at the Lawyers’ Committee for Better Housing and a 2014 school-year Intern at CARPLS. She graduated from Loyola University Chicago Law School in 2014, and is now an Equal Justice Works Fellow at Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law. She also served as the 2013 Intern Representative on PILI’s Board of Directors.
