Dear Pro-Bono Attorneys:

The Highland Park-Highwood Legal Aid Clinic is pleased to offer a training on Family Law on March 16, at 7pm, at the Firehouse Youth Center.

Family law is one of the highest areas of demand for legal services for low-income individuals, and there are many volunteer opportunities for our HPHLAC attorneys in this area as we respond to calls for help with family issues. This training session is intended for attorneys with little or no family law experience, and will cover some of the basics you will need to know in order to assist pro bono clients with family law issues other than divorce.

This 2-hour CLE class will be presented by Deborah Goldberg, a prominent practitioner of family law in Lake County. It will provide an overview of Illinois family law for a low-income clientele, with some focus on new family law statutes as well as issues that intersect with immigration law. The formal presentation will be followed by an opportunity for Q & A. You will receive 1 1/2 hours of CLE for this training.

Please RSVP and let me know if you are going to attend this training. We will look forward to seeing you!
