An invitation to talk about the Law! An invitation to hear about the Law!
As part of our initiative to make a difference in the lives of Illinoisans, and to assist in expanding diversity in the legal profession, lawyers and judges are invited to speak about the law and our legal system in the communities where they reside, play, and work.
This informal program provides ways for community-based organizations to find lawyers in their communities who are willing to speak, without a fee.
Typical presentations last for 20-60 minutes and target topics of the day or of interest to the community.
Request a member of the Illinois State Bar Association to speak at your organization about the legal system in Illinois.
