Justice Circle

Through the Justice Circle, the legal community offers financial support to the work done by the Law Project at the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless.  Attorneys, paralegals, judges and law professors add their names to the list of those who believe that people who experience homelessness are entitled to fair representation and equal protection under the law.

The Law Project is the only legal aid project in Illinois dedicated to serving people who are homeless or at-risk, helping them secure access to schools, housing, jobs or services. We are now registering this year’s Justice Circle members – please click HERE to join with your tax-deductible contribution.

The 2015 Justice Circle reception was held Jan. 28 at the Chicago office of Baker & McKenzie LLP. This year’s reception featured the launch of a new Illinois Homeless Youth Handbook, co-written in a pro bono partnership with United Airlines and Baker & McKenzie. The manual is a comprehensive guide to legal rights and resources for homeless and at-risk youth in Illinois.

The Justice Circle campaign is co-chaired by attorneys Thomas F. Lysaught of the CCH Board of Directors, and Joel C. Solomon of Foley & Lardner LLP.
