City of Chicago Department of Law is a diverse organization and welcomes and encourages applications from diverse candidates.
 
 
Volunteer Program
The Department of Law is interested in highly qualified law students, law school graduates or licensed attorneys to participate in our Volunteer Program. This program is designed to provide participants with a challenging volunteer opportunity that reflects the demands and rewards of public service. The Law Department will select well-rounded applicants who have exhibited academic excellence and an interest in public service from law schools across the nation. Participants in the program are not compensated by the City of Chicago, however, some participants may be able to receive school grants.

Typically, the participants will be assigned to one of the practice divisions within the law department. The participant will be assigned a supervisor/mentor who will coordinate the assignments given to the participant. Together, the chosen participant and the supervisor will determine the start date and the date in which the program will end for the individual.
