“The relationships I made as a PILI Intern and Alum have thoroughly enhanced my personal life and career as an attorney.”
“I have a much deeper understanding and appreciation of our job as lawyers and the corresponding commitment to public service that the profession requires.”
“It was an eye opener to see how much power you can have with your license and how much help you can give to those less fortunate, sometimes without even leaving your office.”
“Being a PILI Fellow while studying for the bar is one of the many reminders that no matter how busy you are, there is always time to serve the public interest.”
PILI is grateful to the attorneys who volunteered on Tuesday, April 19th.
On Thursday, April 6th, PILI’s Alumni Network Leadership Council hosted Play for PILI, bringing in over $4,000 for the Alumni Named Internship Campaign.
“It is our duty as future legal professionals to develop a commitment to service early and continue to inspire subsequent generations to do the same.”
“As a new lawyer there are so many things I do not know. But this system gives me power, and as I learn, I can use it for good.”
Andrew was a 2003 PILI Graduate Fellowship at LAF and received PILI’s Distinguished Fellow Alumni Award in 2014.
