February is Shadow-a-Lawyer Month

The YLS is excited to host a “Shadow-a-Lawyer Month” during the month of February 2020! Our goal is to provide law students with a valuable opportunity to connect with young lawyers in the Chicago area for networking, for mentorship and for firsthand experience and exposure to the day-to-day of practicing law.

We are currently seeking lawyers to volunteer. You can take a student to court, invite them to your office, bring them along to a deposition, or involved them any other task you believe will be beneficial to them. Law students will be able to utilize this opportunity to gain insight to the day-to-day operations of an attorney. If interested, please click here to sign up and indicate your availability by January 17, 2020.

Available opportunities will then be sent to CBA law student members and to our representatives at Chicago law schools so that students can sign up for available time slots and connections will be made by the end of January.

We hope you will consider participating and providing a law student with a valuable opportunity!
