Discover the fun of being a lawyer

Relax, Enjoy, Eat, Drink

All work and no play makes for gloomy lawyers. We need fun in our lives and pro bono is a great place to discover the joy of being a lawyer. CVLS takes care of its volunteers by hosting events where they can relax, hang out, run, eat and drink. Oh, yeah, and be honored for their wonderful work.

From Race Judicata®, the legal community’s lakefront 5K race/walk to Vino + Van Gogh, from our Annual Award Ceremony, Law & Disorder, to our Holiday Open House, we promise to provide enough play to keep you from being dull.
