Five volunteer lawyers assisted clients on September 8th.
We are doing more than ever to expand legal aid for those who need it most, and we hope you will join us in this mission by making a donation to PILI today.
This coming fall and spring, PILI will fund 15 Law Student Interns at 10 legal service agencies in Chicago, our largest class of school-year Interns ever.
Elizabeth is a partner at McDermott Will & Emery and the Chair of PILI’s Alumni Network Leadership Council.
As our current fiscal year closes, Adam Gross, Adam Schwartz, Emily Coffey and Catherine Cottle have completed their terms on PILI’s Board.
A grant award of $30,000 from LTF will create the “Ruth Ann Schmitt Legal Aid Internship” to support one Intern each summer.
Amanda will work at the AIDS Legal Council of Chicago to establish the Family Preservation Project.
Over 80 representatives from the legal community gathered to discuss the future of pro bono in the Tenth Judicial Circuit.
The cocktail reception will take place at the Henry Chandler Gallery at Access Living at 115 W Chicago Ave. PILI is sponsoring the event and we hope to see you there!
This year, thirteen Summer Interns hold Named or Honorary Internship positions, created by special funding commitments from individuals and groups dedicated to promoting public interest law.
