Award Public Interest Law Initiative

Pro Bono Initiative Award

Kirkland received the Pro Bono Initiative award from the Public Interest Law Initiative at the organization's annual awards luncheon in Chicago. The award acknowledges a single entity for its significant pro bono work in the community.

PILI noted: "With outstanding pro bono projects such as the Special Education Clinic in coordination with Equip for Equality, a cross-collaborative Social Security benefits project, and its Ladder Up tax project on the far South Side, to name just a few, Kirkland is often found taking the lead to provide needed pro bono support to the clients of Chicago's legal aid organizations."
