The Chicago Bar Foundation mobilizes our legal community around a cause that is a distinctive responsibility of the legal profession: ensuring that everyone in the Chicago area has equal access to justice, particularly the low-income and disadvantaged people who most critically need the protections of our legal system.
Through grants, advocacy, pro bono and partnerships, the CBF takes a system-wide approach to improving access to justice and focuses on objectives that are best achieved by the legal community working together.
|More specifically, the CBF works to:|
As the charitable arm of The Chicago Bar Association, the CBF's work is made possible by the generous contributions of thousands of dedicated lawyers and legal professionals, more than 200 law firms and corporations, and many other committed partners. Thanks to that strong support, the CBF awarded over $4 million in grants in 2012 and continues to play a lead role in a number of innovative access to justice initiatives.
