September 2015 PILI Spotlights


PILI's September spotlights show two PILI Alumni with unique career paths who continually use their PILI experience to inform their work. In our Pro Bono Spotlight, we will learn how one firm was able to jump nearly 20 spots in the AmLaw Pro Bono Ranking. Finally, you can meet one of our PILI Board Members from outside of Chicago, who has been dedicated to PILI's mission since the beginning of our statewide outreach.


We also invite you to keep up with the latest PILI news on our website or check us out on social media on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter!


As always, thank you for your involvement with PILI and for your support.


Yours truly, 


The Staff of the Public Interest Law Initiative


"It was very humbling to be put in the position where people were looking to me for help, and having the responsibility to then figure out how I could best help them."

"The work I did through my PILI Fellowship gave me the tools to start off on the right foot in my legal career. More importantly, my work as a PILI gave me an internal compass, and a sense that I was truly making a difference in the lives of the children I served." 

"Over the years, I have been impressed by the positive results that Katten attorneys have been able to realize on behalf of clients who might not otherwise have access to legal representation."

"I have really enjoyed being a member of the board. It is an honor to be part of such an organization."
