Description

Volunteer attorneys and interpreters needed!

In partnership with the Consulate General of Mexico, CVLS will be providing guardianship assistance for immigrant families at a free legal clinic in the heart of Chicago’s Hispanic community. Volunteers are needed to advise families on the forms of guardianship available in Illinois and assist families in completing short-term guardianship forms. This clinic will provide undocumented parents with a legal safety plan for their children in the event of the parents’ detention or deportation.

This limited scope pro bono opportunity does not require any representation of clients after the clinic date. Training for this opportunity is via an online video.

Email Rebekah to register for this event. Please indicate if you speak Spanish or if you will need an interpreter. If you are not a registered CVLS volunteer, please also provide your phone number, address, ARDC number, and date of admission to the Illinois bar in your email.
