Programs of the IBF


Lawyers Care


The Illinois Bar Foundation provides funding to not-profit organizations around the state of Illinois; supporting the following three objectives:
  • Enhancing the availability of civil legal aid to those of limited means

    By offering monthly support, the IBF helps eligible attorneys and their families maintain modest but reasonable standards of living. This support helps keep them in their home, buy
    groceries, and pay for the essentials of living as they
    deal with these challenges.

    The newest addition to the IBF's core programs is the Legal Fellowships. This new initiative will provide three recent law school graduates with a position at their alma mater's legal aid clinic. Funding has been approved for the following three schools:
  • Loyola University of Chicago Law School

  • Northern Illinois University School of Law

  • University of Illinois College of Law
