Become a student volunteer
With the oversight of our eleven staff attorneys, student interns/volunteers assist the staff and volunteer attorneys and their clients appearing in the Circuit Court of Cook County and before various administrative agencies.
CVLS is a general legal practice. We allow, therefore, our attorneys and interns to see many different types of cases - from bankruptcy to personal injury defense to family law. There are other responsibilities including research projects, client interviewing and some general clerking duties.
Learn your way around the courtroom
Because you must be supervised by a staff attorney, intern/volunteer times must be during regular business hours, Monday thru Friday. For Student volunteers, we do not require a set amount of hours, but do hope that a student will be able to commit to a minimum of 12 hours per week over 2-3 days. Intern/Extern hours would be based on the internship/externship requirements.
