Welcome to our new newsletter, the PILI Post! The PILI Post was a mailing we used to do twice a year, long before we started sending newsletters via email. In our 40th Anniversary year, we've been looking back with nostalgia and decided to bring back the PILI Post in a new form.

We plan to email the PILI Post out every month, and it will include all you need to stay up-to-date on what's happening at PILI and the Illinois public interest law community. We'll also incorporate guest posts, spotlights and news from around the community.

As always, feel free to stay in touch through Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. We hope you like the new format!


We hope you will celebrate with us at Bin 36 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on September 28th. 
This presentation will focus on the results from the ABA pro bono survey, and will be followed by small group discussions and a networking reception.
