2023 Annual Pro Bono Reception a Wonderful Celebration

On June 21, PILI held the Annual Pro Bono Reception which 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 had an amazing turn out and it was so exciting to connect with so many PILI supporters, our Law School Interns and Graduate Fellows, PILI's Leadership and pro bono volunteers from across the state. We want to thank all of our sponsors, donors, attendees and award recipients who made it a special event!

During the Annual Pro Bono Reception, PILI celebrated our 2023 Theme: A Community of Service with the video below. Please watch to learn more about PILI and how we cultivate a community of service across Illinois.

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. At the event, we honored 44 law firms and corporations that have helped to ensure that individuals, families and communities who are in need receive legal services.


Pro Bono Honor Roll

We also celebrated five volunteers who were named to PILI’s 2023 Pro Bono Volunteer Honor Roll. Those recognized through our Honor Roll have been chosen for their volunteer contributions through PILI's pro bono opportunities. We are so grateful to these extraordinary volunteers whom we regularly rely on to help individuals, families and communities in need.
