Hone your skills with CVLS
Postgraduate fellowships are wonderful opportunities for law firms to support CVLS while gaining something in return. Fellowships, which usually last between six months and two years are sponsored by a firm or legal organization, such as the Public Interest Law Initiative, allow a new attorney to work at CVLS before starting as an associate. In most cases, the fellows receive a modest stipend paid by the firm while they work with CVLS and develop their lawyering skills.
Firms that send fellows to CVLS receive back seasoned attorneys and make a lasting impact on Chicago by expanding legal resources in underserved communities.
