Postgraduate fellowships are wonderful opportunities for law firms to support CVLS while gaining something in return. Fellowships, which usually last between six months and two years are sponsored by a firm or legal organization, such as the Public Interest Law Initiative, allow a new attorney to work at CVLS before starting as an associate. In most cases, the fellows receive a modest stipend paid by the firm while they work with CVLS and develop their lawyering skills.
Firms that send fellows to CVLS receive back seasoned attorneys and make a lasting impact on Chicago by expanding legal resources in underserved communities.
