Between our Annual Pro Bono Reception, weekly Educational Seminars Series and CLEs across the state, it's been a busy summer at PILI! We wanted to pause though and take a look at some of the great work being done by our Alumni, friends and board members. For our Alumni spotlights, we talked to our Alumni Network Service Team Leader, as well as a former PILI Fellow at Chicago Volunteer Legal Services who now serves on their board. Then, we looked behind the scenes at a brand new collaboration between a legal service agency and a large law firm to help families in need. Finally, hear from one of PILI's longest-serving board members, who has been part of our ranks since 1985.
"There is a lot of administrative paperwork that creates barriers for people who aren't lawyers and it's intimidating to go to court without a lawyer. The least we can do is to help make the process easier."
