PILI Executive Director Michael G. Bergmann has been appointed to the American Bar Association’s Coronavirus Task Force. In response to the growing legal needs of Americans arising from the coronavirus (COVID-19), the American Bar Association has created this nationwide task force of volunteer lawyers and judges from across the legal profession. The task force will identify the legal needs arising from the pandemic, make recommendations to address those needs, and help mobilize volunteer lawyers and legal professionals to assist people who need help.
The grant award of $10,000 will help support our Law Student Internship Program.
The DuPage County Bar Association, PILI’s Eighteenth Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committee and Prairie State Legal Services are joining together to hold an Expungement Clinic on April 25th in Wheaton.
PILI is excited to announce that we received a new grant of $20,000 from the American Bar Endowment to purchase and implement Legal Server, a client management system.
PILI is grateful to the Jerome Mirza Foundation for providing a special $5,000 grant to cover the cost of the upcoming Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committees Summit.
As of February 3, 2020, PILI is moving to a new address in downtown Chicago.
The renewed funding from this grant of $13,000 will fully fund two Law Student Interns.
