Pro-Bono Network Fundraiser – 4/14
April 14, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$100
Come out to support the Pro-Bono Network at their third annual Gavels & Growlers Fundraiser.
What is the Pro-Bono Network? Like most places in the country, the legal bar in northern Illinois is unable to provide enough free legal assistance to satisfy the growing demand by those in need.
The irony is that there are many attorneys in Chicagoland want to provide pro bono legal services, but lack a workable model to do so. This is especially true of attorneys who have decided to take time off to raise children, who retired, or who maintain law practices outside the Chicago city-limits.
Out of the clients' need and the attorneys' desire, an idea was born - group these experienced attorneys together and remove barriers to volunteering to make it easier for attorneys to help those in need. As a result, more people in dire need are receiving help. Over 250 volunteers, more than 15,000 hours of legal service and counting -- join us and let's do our part to bridge the justice gap together.
