A community-based legal aid services provider, Greater Chicago Legal Clinic helps underserved, economically disadvantaged individuals and families in the Chicago area navigate the justice system.
Clinic attorneys represent clients in a range of legal practice areas including: foreclosure and eviction, divorce, child support, protection from domestic violence, immigration, criminal records relief, public benefits reconsiderations and appeals, and environmental law. Certain types of services are accessible to clients without cost, while others are available on a sliding-scale basis.
Interns and fellows work closely with Clinic attorneys on activities such as communicating with clients, drafting legal documents, researching legal issues, accompanying attorneys to court or assisting with remote access, and representing clients as allowed by Illinois Supreme Court Rule 711.
Applicants seeking PILI funded internships or fellowships must apply through the PILI program.
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.
