As 2023 comes to an end, we are so incredibly grateful for the PILI community of service. From completing Law Student Internships and Graduate Fellowships to answering questions on Illinois Free Legal Answers to volunteering at an expungement clinic or providing pro bono representation to a client, PILI thanks you for your commitment to advancing access to justice across Illinois. And none of this would be possible without the support of the Illinois legal community for which we are also thankful.
At our Annual Awards Luncheon earlier this month, we announced our theme for 2024: Empowered to Advocate. We empower law students, lawyers, and legal professionals to advocate for others. And we empower our clients to advocate for themselves. But what does this look like? How do we empower to advocate, so we can advance equal access to justice within our legal system?

Before we ring in the new year, we hope you will make a year-end gift to support or join us in our work to engage, inspire and empower those advancing equal access to justice. Make a year-end gift to support PILI, answer a question on Illinois Free Legal Answers, or find other ways to get involved.
Our thanks again for all your support this year. May you and yours have a wonderful holiday season and Happy New Year!
The Staff at PILI
