PILI is excited to welcome Irene Hickey Sullivan of Kirkland & Ellis to our Board of Directors as the 2018 Graduate Fellow Alumni Representative. Each year, PILI appoints one Intern and one Fellow from the most recent class to serve on the board for a two-year term.
Irene is a first-year associate at Kirkland & Ellis. She recently graduated from the University of Chicago Law School and completed her PILI Graduate Fellowship at Chicago Volunteer Legal Services last summer. As part of CVLS’ Access to Justice Program, she worked on various aspects of foreclosure cases, housing voucher terminations and other administrative review cases.
“As a PILI Fellow, I accomplished many important milestones for a young attorney: I stood up in court and performed direct client representation for the first time,” said Irene. “Marking these achievements while learning about new areas of law and working toward CVLS’ mission of providing quality legal representation to Chicago’s underserved communities was an excellent way to start my legal career.”
