Huge congratulations are in order for CVLS volunteer Tejas Shah - ISBA's 2015 Young Lawyer of the Year for Cook County! 

Each year, the Young Lawyers Division of the ISBA recognizes two outstanding young lawyers under the age of 36 - one practicing outside Cook County and one within - for their particular achievements in the field of law. 

Tejas, former chair of our Indo-American Legal Clinic, remains integral to the clinic as an advisor on immigration-related issues. He also served as the 2014 president of the Indo-American Bar Association of Chicago.

Currently, Tejas is Immigration Counsel at Franczek Radelet, leading the firm's immigration practice.
