Next week is National Pro Bono Week – October 19-25, 2014!
PILI is hosting several events across the state to celebrate Pro Bono Week through our Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committees. We will be honoring attorneys in each circuit who have done pro bono in the last year, and presenting special awards to stand-out pro bono attorneys in each circuit.
PILI will also be attending other Pro Bono Week events, including The Chicago Bar Association & The Chicago Bar Foundation’s 21st Annual Pro Bono and Community Service Fair on October 23.
About Pro Bono Week
From the ABA’s National Celebrate Pro Bono website:
“The National Pro Bono Celebration focuses the nation’s attention on the increased need for pro bono services during these challenging economic times and celebrates the outstanding work of lawyers who volunteer their services throughout the year. It is essential that the entire legal community engage in conversation and action that results in equal access to justice for all. The energy generated by the National Pro Bono Celebration is a powerful force that helps us build a just legal system.”
