Chicago Legal Clinic
Public Interest Partner Award
The Chicago Legal Clinic is a premier provider of community-based quality legal services to the underserved and disadvantaged of Chicago. The clinic provides direct legal counseling and high quality representation at low or no cost, and strives to provide services that are compassionate, comprehensive and accessible.
Chicago-Kent is proud of its strong relationship with the Chicago Legal Clinic, which utilizes faculty, staff and alumni of the law school to honor its deep-rooted commitment to the well-being of Chicago’s disadvantaged communities. Keith Harley, a Clinic attorney for nearly 30 years, is also an adjuncet professor at Chicago-Kent, and with Keith’s help, the law school and the Legal Clinic collaborate to run the Chicago Environmental and Energy Law Clinic. This collaboration allows the Chicago Legal Clinic to expand its services to clients facing urban environmental concerns, and provides clinical, service learning experience to nearly 400 Chicago-Kent students thus far. In addition, the Clinic utilizes Chicago-Kent students and alumni as fellows and interns whenever possible, and often refers clients to Chicago-Kent’s Solo and Small Practice Incubator program.
