Not all heroes wear capes. You can make a difference in your community by volunteering for Ask A Lawyer Day, our annual event that recognizes and celebrates Law Day, on April 28 from 9 a.m. to noon. As a volunteer, you will answer calls and field general legal questions from Illinois residents. This is a state-wide public relations effort that helps enhance the image of the profession and receives considerable attention from the public and the media.

Volunteers are needed to answer calls at the Illinois Bar Center offices in Springfield*. There are also opportunities to volunteer remotely by answering questions by email. Breakfast and training will be provided for volunteers.

To sign up, complete the Ask A Lawyer Day Sign Up form online. Questions may be sent directly to Sara Anderson

Find Your Balance with YLD

Posted on March 22, 2018 by Sara Anderson

Join the ISBA's Young Lawyers Division on Saturday, April 7, for yoga and brunch at the Chicago Regional Office.

Studies show that practicing lawyers commonly struggle with depression, anxiety, and stress. Carving out downtime to decompress from work-related stress is one way to combat these issues. Physical activity is one of the most effective ways to recover from the demands of a stressful job. This upcoming event is the perfect opportunity to set aside a couple hours to focus on yourself, participate in a relaxing and stress-free yoga class, and enjoy the company of other young lawyers over mimosas and brunch. 

Bringing your own yoga mat is encouraged, but not required. All skill levels are welcome.

Online registration is now open. Tickets are $20 and include the cost of yoga and brunch.
