From Professor Pam KentraThe Advice Desk program has immediate openings for law students to work with clients in an exciting environment. The Advice Desk is located at the Daley Center in Chicago. In this program, senior law students interview, counsel, and advise clients, and draft pleadings and motions for indigent defendants being sued in Cook County. Students work under the supervision of an experienced licensed attorney.
The Advice Desk, often referred to as the "ER of Law," offers a unique opportunity to receive mentored, on-the-job training and to learn the workings of the Circuit Court of Cook County Municipal Division. Students must be eligible for a 711 License, which requires that a student has completed 52 or more credit hours in law school. Pay is $12.50 per hour and participants must be able to work 20-40 hours per week. Prior experience as an Advice Desk class student is preferred but not required. We will provide all necessary training. If interested, please contact Professor Pam Kentra at firstname.lastname@example.org
