Annual Pro Bono Reception









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 are excited to gather again in person for this event. For those unable to join us in person, we will record the program and present it from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 16th.

In an effort to keep everyone safe and comfortable, we ask that you do not attend this event in person if you are feeling unwell on the day of this event, have recently tested positive for COVID-19, or if you have possibly been exposed to COVID-19 recently.

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.

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 Recognition Roster is unveiled at the Annual Pro Bono Reception and the deadline to submit self-certification is May 27th.

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 2022 Honor Roll will be announced a few weeks prior to the event.
