Public Interest Law Initiative


TransLegal, Chicago House and Social Service Agency

Address:

1925 N Clybourn Ave, Suite 401 Chicago, IL 60614

Contact: Elizabeth Ricks

Website: http://www.chicagohouse.org

Program:

The TransLegal program provides direct legal services to transgender and gender expansive individuals and is part of the TransLife Care Program, which provides comprehensive programming and support to people in those communities. PILLI Interns will work in the areas of housing and employment discrimination, public benefits, criminal records, misdemeanor criminal defense and legal name changes. This position will be a combination of working directly with clients, with a possibility of client representation in court for students with a 7-11 license, and legal research.

This position is a good fit for a creative thinker who likes learning new things. Strong research and writing skills are a must.  Prior work on behalf of the transgender community is a plus, and some experience working with historically marginalized communities (in a professional or volunteer capacity) is strongly preferred.

This agency is approved to host a Law Student Intern in the summer.
