“Legal aid handles cases that affect basic human needs. A pro bono attorney can save a family’s home in the matter of a few hours, or keep someone safe from an abuser. Even working on one case in a year has a measureable impact on a person’s life.”
PILI is pleased to announce that Illinois Appellate Court Justice Michael Hyman will be the keynote speaker at PILI’s Annual Pro Bono Reception on June 18!
“Apart from an attorney’s ethical obligation that comes with the license to practice law, the needs and rewards from giving back to the community and helping those in need are so great that everyone should be given the opportunity and resources to make it a priority.”
At the Federal Government Pro Bono Fair on December 6, PILI was recognized for our efforts in advancing the Chicago Federal Government Pro Bono Program.
The recipient of PILI’s 2013 Pro Bono Initiative Award is DLA Piper (US) LLP. As one of the largest law firms in the world, DLA Piper develops, manages and delivers quality pro bono legal services in immense size, scale and scope.
PILI is co-sponsoring and participating in several events across the city, state, and even the country during National Pro Bono Week. We hope to see you at one or more of these events!
