Virtual Legal Clinic – COVID 19

In light of the catastrophic impact of COVID-19, we have expanded our emergency assistance to nonprofits, entrepreneurs, and small businesses. 

We are partnering with our member law firms to offer a FREE virtual brief service and advice clinic featuring:

  • Expanded eligibility to give free legal advice to more nonprofits and small businesses that need help
  • Information about how to access federal, state, county, and City of Chicago loan funds
  • Referrals to other organizations in Chicago that are providing more in-depth assistance to nonprofits and small businesses with actual loan applications
  • Brief legal advice on issues including employment, leases, contracts, taxes, debt relief, real estate, dissolution or mergers

We will also continue to place small business and nonprofit clients with volunteer attorneys for extended pro bono legal representation.

To apply for emergency COVID-19 legal advice or for our general legal assistance program for nonprofits and small businesses, please fill out our Inquiry Form.

For legal, operational, and funding resources, check out our COVID-19 page.
