JEP Applications are Open

October 5, 2020

The CBF Justice Entrepreneurs Project is seeking entrepreneurial and social justice-minded applicants for its next class of participants who will begin the program in January 2021. 

The JEP prepares talented and entrepreneurial lawyers in the Chicago area to build innovative, socially conscious, and thriving law practices serving low and middle-income legal consumers and small businesses. We believe in the power of entrepreneurial lawyers to make a difference as social entrepreneurs in the quest to ensure access to justice for all. 

Are you a 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? The JEP offers 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 legal consumers. 

Applications are due Friday, October 30. Information sessions to learn more about the program will be held via zoom on Tuesday, October 20th, 2020, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. and Thursday, October 22, 2020, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. You can sign up to attend an info session here and you can apply for the JEP here.
