Lawyers Feeding Illinois
The initiative of ISBA President John Thies has been an overwhelming success! Thanks go to everyone who participated in Lawyers Feeding Illinois. President Thies (center) attended the PCBA's Diversity Luncheon last October and is shown here with John O'Brien and Justice Tom Kilbride. Donations equaling 1,083,160 meals were collected. Upon reaching the local goal of $5,000, the PCBA Foundation made its matching gift.
BU Pre-Law Students Available
Is your firm looking for an intern or volunteer to run files, make copies, file papers, etc.? If so, keep reading. There are several Bradley Pre-Law students who will work at law firms for free so that they are exposed to a legal setting. The idea is for the student to gain exposure to law firm life before he or she commits to law school, while the law firm is gaining work from the student. Ideally, the student would be invited to attend depositions, court hearings, trials, mediations, etc., so that the student can see what it really means to practice as an attorney. Please contact Nicole Meyer (Director, Pre-Law Center) at email@example.com or at (309) 677-4186 if you are interested.
