The Newsletter of the Public Interest Law Initiative
Summer is almost here which means summer PILI Interns and PILI Fellows are starting at their agencies, the Annual Pro Bono Reception is only a month away, and Pro Bono Committees across the state are busier than ever.
This year, we are delighted that the Honorable Lisa Y. Wilson, Associate Judge in the Tenth Judicial Circuit and Chair of PILI's Tenth Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committee will be our featured guest speaker.
On May 2nd, PILI's Young Professionals Board hosted their inaugural event: the Arcade for Legal Aid. Nearly 100 young professionals, board members, sponsors and friends of PILI gathered to raise money for PILI's programs.
Barbara joined PILI's Board of Directors in 1994, later being named as a Life Director in 2017. She dedicated her legal career to educating young lawyers at DePaul University College of Law and through her involvement in and support of PILI's Law Student Internship and Graduate Fellowship Programs.
In a few short weeks, our summer Law Student Interns and Graduate Fellows will be starting at their agencies. To prepare, we reached out to some of our Intern & Fellow supervisors who offered some advice.
