Thanks to 4 attorneys from Kirkland & Ellis and 4 attorneys from United Airlines, Inc. who partnered to volunteer at Legal Prep Community Law Clinic on Tuesday, November 14th. PILI’s Alumni Network Leadership Council collaborates with Chicago Volunteer Legal Services (CVLS) and Legal Prep Charter Academies to host a monthly community-based clinic for the student families and neighbors of Legal Prep in the Garfield Park neighborhood. PILI invites law firms and corporations to “adopt” a clinic date with attorneys from the firm who serving as pro bono attorneys at the clinic.
