Pro Bono in Communities (10/24/22)

This is a hybrid event with an in-person (The Chicago Bar Association, 321 S. Plymouth) and a webinar option. Please select the appropriate button when registering if you plan to attend in-person.

Hear from the Center for Disability & Elder Law, the Legal Aid Society Communities Partnering 4 Peace Program, the Chicago Bar Association’s Lawyers in the Classroom program, and the Chicago Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Section about how you can give back in your communities.
