ISBA Lawyers in Classrooms

Lawyers in ClassroomsAn Invitation to Make A Difference!

As part of our initiative to make a difference in the lives of Illinois students, and to assist in expanding diversity in the legal profession, lawyers and judges are invited to go back to school and speak to students on law-related topics.

This informal program provides ways for Illinois teachers to search an ISBA database to find volunteers in their areas who are willing to speak on specific subjects.

Typical classroom presentations last for 30-60 minutes and can be on topics that the teachers wish discussed or enhanced by the participating ISBA volunteer.
