Founded in 1981, the Chicago Legal Clinic, Inc. provides low-cost and free legal services to disadvantaged individuals in the Chicago region. The Clinic’s four offices are located in the communities of South Chicago, Downtown, Pilsen, and Austin. Attorneys provide representation in several areas of law including: social security disability claims, collection defense, landlord/tenant, family law (divorce, child support, visitation, and assistance to victims of domestic violence), guardianships of disabled adults, immigration, and ex-offender advocacy.

Additionally, Clinic attorneys supervise the Chancery Advice Desk located at the Richard J. Daley Center and the Municipal Pro Bono Program located at our Downtown Office.

PILI Interns & Fellows work directly with attorneys and research legal issues, draft legal documents, including pleadings and motions, draft correspondence, communicate with clients, and appear in court pursuant to Supreme Court Rule 711.

NOTE: The Fall Internship is located at the Pilsen Office, located at 1914 S. Ashland Street – Lower Level, Chicago, IL  60608. The Pilsen Office primarily practices Immigration Law and Spanish-speaking is a plus.

This agency is approved to host Law Student Interns during the fall and spring semesters and during the summer. They are also approved to host Graduate Fellows.
