Legal aid organizations advocate on behalf of underserved, under-resourced, and in many cases discriminated-against segments of the population. Often their services are focused on one particular aspect of the broader legal profession, e.g. immigration law.
Organizations marked as "FWS" have signed contracts with Loyola University to hire one or more Loyola students through the community-based Federal Work-Study program. Fuller descriptions of each organization, as well as posted volunteer, intern, and paid positions with these and other Chicago-area and national agencies, can be found on Loyola's RamblerLink system.
