Annual Pro Bono Reception

SAVE THE DATE: The 2023 Annual Pro Bono Reception will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 21, 2023 at the Ivy Room at Tree Studios.

About the Event

PILI’s Annual Pro Bono Reception celebrates 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 were excited to gather again in person for this event. For those who were unable to join us in person, we recorded the program so that it can be watched at any time.

Sponsor the Event

We offer several sponsorship opportunities and recognizes events sponsors on all web and print material related to the event. In 2021, there were 39 sponsors for this event, including 32 law firms and seven corporations. Firm and corporate sponsorships start at $1,000 and all funds raised go towards our Pro Bono Program. The initial sponsorship deadline is May 10, 2023.

Pro Bono Recognition Roster

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. These firms and corporations are helping ensure that individuals, families and communities who are in need receive legal services. The self-certification for the 2023 Pro Bono Recognition Roster will open in February 2023.

Pro Bono Volunteer Honor Roll

We will also celebrate those named to PILI’s Pro Bono Volunteer Honor Roll. 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 are so grateful to these extraordinary volunteers whom we regularly rely on to help individuals, families and communities in need. Those named to the 2023 Honor Roll will be announced in May celebrated at the Annual Pro Bono Reception.
