PILI Announces 2019 Class of Law Student Interns and Graduate Fellows
The Public Interest Law Initiative (PILI) has announced the 2019 class of summer interns and fellows. This year, 50 summer law student interns and 75 graduate fellows will provide 42,500 hours of legal services at any of PILI’s 60 participating agencies.
PILI’s Law Student Internship Program connects law students from across the country with public interest law agencies in Illinois and pays them for their work. Summer 2019 PILI interns come from 23 law schools and include rising 2Ls and 3Ls. They will each provide 400 hours of legal services at 28 legal service agencies, for a total of 20,000 hours served. See a full list of the 2019 law student interns.
Of these Interns, 22 hold named or honorary internship positions, created and funded by individuals and groups dedicated to promoting public interest law. The ISBA Young Lawyers Division funds an intern every summer. This summer, Mehgan Keeley from Loyola University Chicago School of Law is the ISBA YLD intern at LAF. This named internship provides direct legal services to, or on behalf of, poor, disenfranchised, and underrepresented children. View the full list of PILIs named and honorary internships.
