Pro Bono Week

In 2005, the CBF and the Chicago Bar Association launched our annual Pro Bono Week to celebrate and encourage pro bono work and to educate both the public and the legal community about how lawyers and legal professionals are improving the lives of the less fortunate. The 15th annual celebration took place October 21-25, 2019, and was chaired by Hon. Nichole C. Patton of the Circuit Court of Cook County and Katherine W. Shank from Legal Aid Chicago. Inspired by the success here in Chicago, Pro Bono Week is now a National Celebration of Pro Bono.
