The summer is flying by! And soon it will be time to say goodbye to PILI's summer Law Student Interns and Graduate Fellows who will be wrapping up their work in the coming weeks. All of PILI's supporters and friends are welcome to join us to welcome the newest class of Interns and Fellows to our Alumni Network at our Alumni Reception on Thursday, August 11th. Get your tickets today and join us in celebration!

2022 is PILI’s 45th anniversary, and we are celebrating with the theme “Take the Initiative!” Our founders envisioned a more equitable legal system with greater access to justice for all. We’re not only honoring that vision but doing more than ever to realize it with support from donors like you. You can also read more about our 45 years of impact here. Your support will ensure that we can help more clients in need. Will you join us in taking the initiative by making a donation today?
We are also planning CLE programs, pro bono clinics and continuing with our Intern & Fellow Summer Educational Series. Details are below and you can always find a list of upcoming events on our website. We hope to see you over the next month!
