Thank you to attorneys from Latham & Watkins who volunteered at the Legal Prep Community Law Clinic on Tuesday, May 1st. 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.

Thanks to our wonderful volunteers from Latham: Board Member Dave Callahan, Lesley Hamming, Kumar and Kumar Ravula. They spent the evening assisting low-income clients with legal issues including adoption, tort defense and a name change.

PILI coordinates this monthly clinic, typically held on the first Tuesday of each month. If you are interested in hosting or your firm is interested in adopting a clinic date, please contact PILI Program Manager Brent Page by email or by phone at 312-832-5128.
