Alumni Network Teams

Alumni programs

The Alumni Network Teams help drive the Alumni Network's outreach and programming, and we are always recruiting new team members.

Program Planning Team

Team Leader: Nidhi D. Narielwala, Norton Rose Fulbright & Jill E. Roberts, Administrative Office of the Illinois Courts

The Alumni Program Planning Team plans and evaluates PILI Alumni programs such as CLE trainings, workshops, and advising programs.

Alumni Engagement Team

Team Leader: Marlow Svatek, Sidley Austin LLP

The Alumni Engagement Team conducts outreach in support of PILI Alumni and plans events for Alumni, including the Alumni Reunion Reception. Every year since 2011, PILI Alumni have raised enough money to fully fund one PILI Intern, and in 2014 Alumni began funding 2 Interns. We rely on support from individual Alumni donors, many of whom have joined PILI Giving Circles, as well as revenue from Alumni fundraising events.

Public Service Team

C0-Team Leaders: Cristina Headley, Equip for Equality & Usama Ibrahim, McDermott Will & Emery LLP

The Public Service Team develops and implements public service projects for members of the PILI Alumni Network to undertake together, in partnership with PILI's Participating Agencies, such as the Legal Prep Community Law Clinic.

If you would like to volunteer for a team, please contact PILI's Attorney Program Manager Arthur Surratt by email or by phone at 312-832-5130.
