LAF Represents at Legal Aid Conference

 Earlier this month, most of LAF’s staff attended the 2017 Illinois Legal Aid Advocates Conference hosted by the Lawyers Trust Fund of Illinois. The two-day event is only put on every three years, and this year it was held at the McCormick Place in downtown Chicago. The conference gave our staff the chance to learn new things, meet new colleagues and reconnect with old ones, and renew their commitment to serving our most vulnerable populations. The guest speakers encouraged attendees to recognize inherent racial biases and remember the importance of the work. Many LAF attorneys led break out sessions and were featured panel speakers, which covered all legal areas our organization handles.
