The SDF Family Law Center partnered with the Center for Public Interest Law and the Pro Bono & Community Service Initiative to host its third Alumni & Student Family Law Legal Answers Pro Bono Clinic with Illinois Legal Aid Online (ILAO). Law students and attorneys participated in the clinic day and worked together in six different teams to research and answer family law questions posted on ILAO’s Legal Answers website. By the end of the clinic, the attorney/student pro bono teams answered twenty-seven family law questions, which comprised all of the family law questions on the Legal Answers website at that time. The students enjoyed working closely with the attorneys and gained invaluable hands-on experience in family law, as well as advice and tips for breaking into the field. The attorneys enjoyed the experience because they were able to engage in pro bono work while at the same time mentoring and supporting aspiring family law students.
