Research Discrete Issues

LCLC is always in need of attorneys and other legal professionals to conduct legal research on discrete matters related to a youth’s criminal case. Volunteers work one-on-one with a staff attorney in receiving training and support for their legal matter. Volunteers also are given access to training videos and additional materials to inform their research. This volunteer opportunity can be done remotely.

Lawndale Christian Legal Center cares for the legal needs of the underserved and marginalized by representing youth and young adults twenty-four years old and younger who live in North Lawndale (and nearby neighborhoods) and are involved in the juvenile and adult criminal courts. LCLC provides legal representation, social services, and mentoring.
