The few hours you give enable the group to give many...

Based in Oak Park/River Forest Illinois, we work with legal aid agencies to create opportunities that allow local women attorneys to actualize their pro bono commitment, even when other life events take precedence.  As a group, we are better able to arrange projects in a way that are convenient to our hours and structure them so that there is always backup. Our organization is ideal for caregivers since our projects are team or pair-based as well as chosen with sensitivity to geographic location and school-pickup times. All attorneys are welcome. Inactive status is allowed under Illinois rules. Projects are underway with training, occasional CLE, and malpractice insurance provided.

Looking for Pro Bono Network?   This is it.  New website under construction. 

To join, go to our Meetup Site.  That's where all the work gets done!

Projects for 2013-2014

In our third year, our goal is to keep you as busy as you want to be.  *Consumer Debt Collection*   *Jail Clinic for Incarcerated Mothers*   *Lawyers in the Classroom*  *Legislative Tracking for the Coalition for the Homeless*  *Coaching Mock Trial at Fenwick*  *Consumer Debt Collection Desk*  *Wills at Home*  *Immigration VAWA/U Visa*   *Powers of Attorneys for Seniors*  *Monthly Senior Clinic*   *Tenant Representation*

Some attorneys are participating in everything and some in one.  Whatever your speed is, there is a project for you.  Work as little or as much as you want and there is even work where you never have to leave your house.  More information about each project can be found under the "Projects" tab and the Meetup site.  All attorneys, including inactive and unlicensed, welcome at any time of the year.

We look forward to another fulfilling year of community service and meeting like-minded attorneys!
