PILI is extremely grateful to the Lesbian and Gay Bar Association Foundation (LAGBAC) for new funding that will allow PILI to open three new summer Internship allocations in Summer 2019.
This is a report on the Fall 2018 Interns including the type of work they did, the clients they served and their impact. It also includes evaluation data on their experience with PILI.
Pro Bono Week 2018 was October 21st to October 27th this year and PILI celebrated with 11 events, 400 attendees, over a dozen awards and several pro bono opportunities!
PILI recently received grants from the Retirement Research Foundation and the DuPage Bar Foundation for which we are extremely grateful.
PILI will fund 60 Law Student Interns at 28 public interest law organizations across Illinois during the 2018-19 academic year and the summer of 2019.
As we start a new fiscal year, we are introducing board leadership for two-year terms and welcome several new board members.
Welcoming Emily Seymore as Chair, Jessica Schneider as Chair-Elect and David Scriven-Young as Vice Chair.
“I am extremely excited to join the board of such a storied organization. PILI has done so much good in our community and I look forward to helping PILI continue to achieve its mission however I can.”
Illinois is home to somewhere near 1 million veterans, active duty service members, members of the national guard, and spouses and dependents of the same. Illinois is also home to the most comprehensive statewide network of civil legal service providers dedicated to assisting that population in the country.
This funding supports the Law Student Internship Program.
