The Chicago Bar Foundation works to ensure that everyone in the Chicago area has equal access to justice, particularly the low-income & disadvantaged people who most critically need the protections of the legal system. Through grants,advocacy, pro bono & partnerships, the CBF works to: strengthen our community’s pro bono & legal aid organizations; enable dedicated lawyers to pursue careers in legal aid; maximize opportunities for pro bono lawyers; & make the courts & legal system more user-friendly and accessible for those in need. Over the last year, the CBF awarded a new record of more than $4 million in grants & played a lead role in a number of important access to justice projects & initiatives.
