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.
