The Community Law Project helps to build, strengthen, and support community-based organizations that are focused on economic development and social services in Chicago’s low-income neighborhoods. We provide transactional legal assistance to create, stabilize, and foster growth of nonprofits and small businesses, and we give legal support to coalitions of nonprofits in negotiations with developers to secure benefits for surrounding communities.
