Since 2013, the Justice Entrepreneurs Project (JEP) in Chicago has helped attorneys build innovative sustainable practices that target middle income clients who make too much for legal aid, but generally can’t afford traditionally priced legal services. In 2017 alone, the 50 attorneys in the JEP Network—comprised of individuals currently in the 18 month program, and graduates who remain committed to JEP Principles and Standards—helped over 5,000 clients, 4,000 of whom fell below 400% of the Federal Poverty Line.
Please join us to meet alum and JEP Director, Trevor Clark, andJEP attorneys Chrissie Martell, Jessica Bell, and Nora Endzel to learn more about the JEP program and the training, resources, and network that it offers.
