North Suburban Legal Aid Clinic

The North Suburban Legal Aid Clinic (“NSLAC”) provides accessible, high-quality, and free civil justice services to vulnerable, low-income families in Lake County and the northern suburbs of Cook County. We provide legal services to those in need in the areas of immigration, housing and domestic violence. NSLAC is a young and dynamic growing organization with collaborative and collegial employees working in a flexible hybrid format (home/office). The aim is to provide the fellow with hands-on experience in working with clients (interview, counselling, case planning), negotiating with opposing parties and learning from all internal perspectives of the court proceedings. Working directly with our experienced lawyers, the fellow receives practical ideas and constructive feedback. The North Suburban Legal Aid Clinic is accredited to accept PILI Graduate Fellows. NSLAC`s work provides a PILI Fellow with a wide range of opportunities to enhance their legal skills. The PILI Fellow will work in at least one of NSLAC`s practice areas, depending on their preferences, background and needs, and will be supervised by experienced clinic staff. They may work to obtain protection orders, prevent deportations, or prevent immigration matters, including family petitions, preparing asylum claims, or applying for U-U. visas.
