On May 2nd, the Highland Park-Highwood Legal Aid Clinic celebrated its first anniversary! In our first year, we have had over 100 people come through our doors looking for legal assistance. We have signed up over 50 volunteer attorneys who are ready to assist, and we have had three CLE classes to provide continuing legal education credits to our attorneys. We have raised all the funds to keep the clinic open from our founding sponsors and people in the community who have donated when asked.

Thank you to The City of Highland Park, who has again this year supported us with a grant. Please consider donating to the clinic to help us stay open and provide these free legal services that are not available elsewhere for so many people. Thank you to our volunteers and supporters for their benevolence, we could not do it with out you!
