Hello LAGBAC Membership!

Somehow it feels like just yesterday we were all together celebrating our Swearing in Ceremony back in February. Things certainly look a bit different now, but plenty of things are still moving forward, maintaining a sense of normalcy in these times, including LAGBAC's Mentorship Program!

It is that time of the year again to register for LAGBAC's Annual Mentorship Program! This year, we are excited to announce that Attorneys will have the opportunity to receive 6 credits of professional responsibility CLE credit upon successful completion of the program.

Please register for the Program and find more information at the following links (make sure Students and Attorneys use their respective links).

Prejudice and intolerance continue to be a problem not only in Chicago, but across the United States. Hate divides communities and can lead to crime and violence in local neighborhoods, schools and places of worship. In an effort to combat bias and hatred, the Community Justice Centers will present a virtual program to bring awareness to hate crimes. Educating communities about hate crimes can help create healthy, safe and violence-free environments.

Date And Time:

Thursday, August 6, 2020
6:00 PM – 7:30 PM CDT
