About the Event

PILI’s Annual Awards Luncheon brings together the Illinois legal community every year to celebrate the very best aspects of the legal profession: the generosity, expertise and commitment of the countless law students, recent graduates, lawyers and legal professionals, law firms, corporations and law schools who dedicate themselves to providing legal assistance and advocacy to those in need. This event is PILI’s largest annual fundraiser, providing critical support for our work across Illinois.

This year’s luncheon will be a hybrid celebration with opportunities to join us in person and online.
