Make a Nomination

Every year, PILI presents several awards to acknowledge lawyers and legal programs whose dedication to service, fairness, and justice inspires us and makes us proud.

PILI's Annual Awards

  • The Distinguished Public Service Award honors an individual whose commitment to public interest work has shaped a career dedicated to service.
  • The Distinguished Alumni Awards recognize one former PILI Intern and one former PILI Fellow for outstanding contributions of public interest and/or pro bono work. Not sure if someone is PILI Alum? Email us to confirm.
  • The Pro Bono Initiative Award acknowledges a single entity for its significant pro bono work in the community.

You may submit a self-nomination or nominate a colleague, and you may also submit multiple nominations. Nominations for 2020 are due by Friday, October 2nd.
