JEP Accepting Applications for Participants

The Justice Entrepreneurs Project is seeking entrepreneurial and public interest-minded recent law graduates for its next class of lawyers who will begin the program in May 2017.

At the Justice Entrepreneurs Project, we prepare talented and entrepreneurial lawyers in the Chicago area to manage innovative, socially conscious, and successful law practices. We believe in the power of entrepreneurial lawyers to make a difference as solo practitioners in the quest to ensure access to justice for all.

Are you a recently admitted lawyer interested in obtaining the skills and resources necessary to build an innovative and successful law practice? Are you interested in making a positive impact on your community as a social entrepreneur? We offer access to mentorship, continuing legal education, a network of like-minded individuals, and subsidized resources to kick start a legal practice targeted at the underserved middle market of potential clients.

Applications are due Friday, March 10 (apply online here). You can learn more about the program and applying at information sessions at the JEP offices (208 S. Jefferson, Suite 204) on February 27 at 5:30 pm and March 2 at 12:15 pm. If you plan to attend an information session, please email with the date you plan to attend.
