On Tuesday, September 19th, Reed Smith attorneys adopted the Legal Prep Community Law Clinic in the Garfield Park neighborhood. This is Reed Smith’s third time adopting the clinic!
PILI is looking for firms with PILI Alumni to adopt an evening at the Legal Prep Community Law Clinic in 2018.
A guest post from Charles P. Golbert, the Chair of our Alumni Network Leadership Council.
“The relationships I made as a PILI Intern and Alum have thoroughly enhanced my personal life and career as an attorney.”
“I have a much deeper understanding and appreciation of our job as lawyers and the corresponding commitment to public service that the profession requires.”
“It was an eye opener to see how much power you can have with your license and how much help you can give to those less fortunate, sometimes without even leaving your office.”
“Being a PILI Fellow while studying for the bar is one of the many reminders that no matter how busy you are, there is always time to serve the public interest.”
PILI is grateful to the attorneys who volunteered on Tuesday, April 19th.
On Thursday, April 6th, PILI’s Alumni Network Leadership Council hosted Play for PILI, bringing in over $4,000 for the Alumni Named Internship Campaign.
“It is our duty as future legal professionals to develop a commitment to service early and continue to inspire subsequent generations to do the same.”
