Lawyers defeat Blackhawks All-Stars in charity classic
With the assistance of former NHL and Chicago Blackhawks’ players, local celebrities, and members of the Bar and Bench, the legal community came together on Sunday, December 20, 2015 at the United Center before the regularly scheduled game between the Blackhawks and the San Jose Sharks, to raise funds for the Chicago Legal Clinic.
The Chicago Legal Clinic has a 34-year history of providing legal services to the poor and elderly in the Chicago area. Founded as the South Chicago Legal Clinic by DePaul College of Law classmates the Most Rev. Thomas J. Paprocki, Bishop of Springfield, and Edward Grossman, longtime Executive Director, the Clinic serves a host of legal needs focusing primarily on vulnerable populations, such as immigrants, the disabled, victims of domestic violence, those facing foreclosure, children in the midst of divorce, consumers with serious debt issues, and those confronting urban environmental problems.
