NSLAC Volunteer Coordinator and Law Practice Support VISTA
Founded by Mayor Nancy Rotering, the Clinic opened on May 1, 2015 to provide access to justice to those in need who lived in Highland Park or Highwood. Since then, the Clinic continues to strategically meet the ever changing needs of individuals and the greater community by expanding capacity, services offered, and geographic locations. The Clinic recently changed its name to the North Suburban Legal Aid Clinic to better reflect the overall purpose of the organization. The Clinic does not receive funding from the Legal Services Corporation, allowing all clients, regardless of immigration status, to be served. Since the day the Clinic opened, we have helped immigrants stay in this country; domestic violence victims escape abusive relationships; and helped tenants stay in their home and avoid wrongful eviction. In addition, we have partnered with organizations and law firms to present educational programming for clients, and the public.
