PILI Intern & Fellow Orientation

Each year, PILI hosts an orientation for Interns and Fellows to kick-off the summer. This program serves as an introduction to the Illinois legal aid community and some of the struggles your clients face as well as the impact you can have. We also focus on developing practical skills that will be useful this summer and throughout your career. Registration and continental breakfast will be available at 9:00 am with the programming beginning promptly at 9:30. The programming will conclude with a networking reception from 4:00 to 5:30 pm.

PILI Interns and Fellows are encouraged to attend in person, but virtual participation is also available. This program is also open for all interns at Illinois agencies to attend virtually. We have a full day of speakers lined up as well as opportunities to network with PILI’s Board and Alumni, so most in-person attendees find business casual attire appropriate. A detailed schedule for the Orientation will be available here soon. Advance registration is required.

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 program/event, have recently tested positive for COVID-19, or if you have possibly been exposed to COVID-19 recently.

Please register below by Monday, May 29th.

If you have any questions about the Intern & Fellow Orientation, please contact PILI’s Attorney Program Manager Arthur Surratt by email or by phone at 312-832-5130.
