The Chicago Lawyers' Committee is staffed by nine full time attorneys and two part time attorneys, as well as two paralegals, three outreach coordinators, and minimal administrative and support staff. Our employees work tirelessly to champion civil rights and community development through fair housing, employment opportunity, hate crime response, transactional law, and assisting pro se litigants in reaching settlements. Biographies of each staff member are available here.
However, the real strength of the Chicago Lawyers' Community is in the passion and energy of its volunteers. The Chicago Lawyers' Committee is committed to leveraging the fresh ideas and talent of fellows and interns, including lawyers, recent JDs, law students, and undergraduates that have an eye to civil rights law, to better preserve, protect and champion civil rights.
Currently seeking unpaid Legal Interns (law student interns) and Legal Fellows (recent law school graduates).
