Thank You for a Successful 2024 Annual Pro Bono Reception

PILI Board Vice President Kyle Petersen, President Daniel Lange and Executive Director Michael Bergmann at the 2024 Annual Pro Bono Reception.

On June 26th, PILI held our Annual Pro Bono Reception celebrating 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.

We had an incredible turnout, and it was wonderful to connect with so many of our supporters and friends - from our Law School Interns and Graduate Fellows, to members of our leadership bodies, to representatives from our Participating Agencies, to pro bono volunteers from across the state. We are especially grateful to our generous event sponsors for their support of PILI and our Pro Bono Program!

At the event, we unveiled our 2024 Pro Bono Recognition Roster and our Pro Bono Honor Roll. The Pro Bono Recognition Roster honors law firms and corporations that have made significant commitments and contributions to pro bono throughout the state of Illinois by providing legal assistance to individuals, families and communities in need. Those recognized through our Honor Roll have been chosen by PILI staff for their volunteer contributions through the pro bono opportunities available through PILI’s Pro Bono Program.

We also celebrated the 25th anniversary of the launch of PILI's Pro Bono Initiative for the New Millennium. Established in 1999, the goal was to expand the amount and types of pro bono work being done by lawyers at both corporate legal departments and law firms.
