See why many well-respected members of Chicago’s legal community are members of the Council:

  1. Join a group of like-minded Chicago lawyers who believe that the legal profession is among the most noble of professions, and have dedicated themselves to improving the justice system in Chicago.
  2. Volunteer opportunities provide a great way to get involved, network with others in the legal community, and promote change in a variety of social justice issues. Our collaboration with Chicago Appleseed, a research and advocacy organization focusing on fair, efficient and effective courts,  includes four program advisory committees:  criminal justice, immigration court reform, child and family law reform, and access to justice.
  3. The Council’s  state  judicial evaluations provide a valuable resource for lawyers and judges alike! Check out our latest judicial evaluations at the links above.
  4. Make your voice heard! Join the Council and speak out on issues that affect you as a legal professional and as a resident of Illinois.
  5. Become part of the nationwide Appleseed Network of public interest law centers. The Council partners with the Chicago Appleseed Fund For Justice, which is one of 17 social justice centers in the U.S. and Mexico comprising the Appleseed Network.
  6. Be informed. E-newsletters help
    you stay on top of our latest work and informs our members about volunteer opportunities. Publications and reports serve as valuable reference materials in your daily practice. These publications and reports are available free of charge or discounted charge to Council members.
