Brett J. Hart, Executive Vice President and General Counsel of United Airlines, Inc., will lead the CBF’s 9th Annual Investing in Justice Campaign. The Campaign, which kicks off the week of March 2nd and runs throughout the month, is an annual campaign where the entire legal community comes together around our common cause as a legal profession helping to ensure that everyone has access to necessary legal help, not just those who can afford it. Thousands of individual lawyers and legal professionals at about 150 Chicago-area law firms, corporate legal departments, companies, and other law-related organizations participate in the Campaign.
100% of individual contributions to the Campaign go directly towards CBF grants to more than 35 pro bono and legal aid organizations. Over the past eight years, the Investing in Justice Campaign has raised a total of more than $10 million. Thanks to that generosity and the ongoing success of the Campaign, tens of thousands of low-income and disadvantaged people have been able to get necessary legal assistance, and the justice system continues to work better for everyone. We look forward to another successful Campaign this year under the exemplary leadership of Brett Hart.
