Program:

The James B. Moran Center for Youth Advocacy provides integrated legal and social work services to low-income Evanston youth (21 and younger) and their families to improve their quality of life at home, at school and within the community. Our practice focuses on juvenile delinquency, adult misdemeanor and felony, expungement and sealing and school law matters.

PILI Fellows will work closely with staff attorneys on juvenile delinquency, adult misdemeanor and felony, expungement and sealing and school law matters. Fellows will provide case management, interview witnesses, conduct legal research, assist with plea bargains, prepare mitigation reports, and will have the opportunity to participate in criminal bench and jury trials including examining witnesses and/or presenting opening statements. Fellows will also assist staff at our expungement and sealing help desk at the Skokie Courthouse and may be asked to assist with trainings on legal rights and responsibilities to high-school aged youth. 711 law license required and travel to and from Evanston and the Skokie Courthouse are required.

This agency is approved to host Graduate Fellows in 2017.
