Walk a Month in My Shoes:An Experience for Pro Bono Attorneys & Others Who Work with Low-Income Clients
This interactive program is designed to help the legal community better understand the hardships faced by their low-income clients. As lawyers, we are trained to evaluate & address legal issues, but being an effective advocate requires us to understand our clients' circumstances beyond the legal issues. In this thought-provoking workshop for the Chicago legal community, each attendee will be assigned a life circumstance & try to make it through a simulated month, dealing with issues of transportation, child-care & unexpected events. This workshop offers the chance to better understand how to work effectively with low-income clients, & to consider critically the ways in which we deliver services. Facilitated by Tiela Chalmers, a nationally recognized expert on access to justice issues.
