On Wednesday, June 18th, over 250 members of the Illinois legal community gathered together in celebration at PILI’s Annual Pro Bono Reception. Representatives from law firms, corporations, law schools, PILI’s Participating Agencies and the Class of 2014 Interns & Fellows were on hand for this special event, with Illinois Appellate Justice Michael B. Hyman as our guest speaker.
PILI’s Annual Pro Bono Reception is our opportunity to celebrate the Illinois legal community’s pro bono triumphs, and to spotlight the amazing and critically-needed pro bono work being done in our state, as well as the work of PILI’s Pro Bono Initiative. Each year, we also pay tribute to Illinois law firms and corporations named to PILI’s Pro Bono Recognition Roster while enjoying drinks, appetizers, and excellent company. This year, 32 law firms and 11 corporations were named to the 2014 Pro Bono Recognition Roster.
We are so very thankful to the law firms and corporations that sponsored this year’s event. The generosity of these firms and corporations directly supports PILI’s efforts to expand and enhance pro bono in Illinois through its Pro Bono Initiative Program.
SAVE THE DATE: The 2015 Annual Pro Bono Reception will be held on Wednesday, June 17, 2015 at the Ivy Room at Tree Studios. Stay tuned for more details.
