In celebration of National Pro Bono Week, the Pro Bono & Community Service Initiative is partnering with the Schiller DuCanto & Fleck Family Law Center, the Center for Public Interest Law, and Public Interest Law Initiative (PILI) for a virtual pro bono clinic on Friday, October 30, 1-3 pm, where students will partner with attorneys to answer legal questions posted on Illinois Free Legal Answers. Illinois Free Legal Answers is a secure website run by PILI where lower income Illinois residents can ask a lawyer for help with civil legal issues.
The clinic will be conducted over Zoom. Training and materials will be provided. Attorney volunteers can receive 0.5 hours of CLE credit.
