Second and third-year law students in the Chicago area may apply for PILI Internship opportunities at seven public interest law organizations this coming spring.
PILI is hosting several special events across the state through our Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committees to celebrate Pro Bono Week and to honor pro bono attorneys in each circuit.
They were chosen from more than 1,400 nominations from across the state for their intelligence, passion, success in the office, desire to help the community, and willingness to work hard at one of the country’s most important professions.

These awardees were selected from among many nominations for their outstanding contributions to public interest law and pro bono in Illinois.

This award is the CBA’s highest honor, annually recognizing attorneys who best exemplify Justice Stevens’ commitment to integrity and public service in the practice of law.
These grants will provide stipends for 51 PILI Law Student Interns over the 2014-15 academic year and the summer of 2015 through PILI’s Law Student Internship Program.
