Spring is almost here which means along with warmer weather and sunshine, there are so many exciting pro bono opportunities and events coming up!
We're less than one month away from Arcade for Legal Aid on Wednesday, April 12th
! We hope you will join our Young Professionals Board as we celebrate the fifth anniversary since it was established. This fun event is a great way to join the PILI community in supporting our work. We hope to see you there!
Over the last month, we hosted two Illinois Free Legal Answers clinics. PILI partnered with Taft Stettinius & Hollister as well as the DuPage County Bar Association and NIU College of Law to pair lawyers and law students together to answer questions on the site. Additionally, PILI's Eighteenth Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committee partnered with Prairie State Legal Services and the DuPage County Bar Association to host a Wills & Powers of Attorney Clinic to help veterans, seniors and their spouses to draft wills and POAs. Thank you to our lawyers, law students and other pro bono volunteers for helping PILI build a community of service across Illinois.
