New Pro Bono Opportunities

In October 2006 the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois approved a new Chicago Lawyers' Committee pro bono program which will provide free legal assistance to pro se civil rights litigants who face a settlement conference. These pro bono opportunities are short term and provide federal court negotiation and advocacy experience. If you are lawyer in a CLC member firm and are interested, please contact Laurie Wardell, at lwardell@clccrul.org.
