Dear Latinx Law Students:
These last several months have been very difficult, and while we are heartened by the collective effort of Illinoisans to help stop the spread of the virus, we know that has meant a tremendous amount of sacrifice on the part of everyone, including the law school community. We know that campuses have closed. We know that summer programs and even graduations have been moved online or canceled altogether. And we know that jobs for new attorneys may be scarce.
That is why HLAI is working on ways to help, and we need to hear from you. How can we be a helpful resource as you navigate these uncertain times? HLAI has a broad network of attorneys, judges, and advocates that want to help. So, please, reach out to us with any suggestions you may have at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime, please stay safe, stay healthy, and know that we look forward to you joining us in this great profession. We will all get there, together.
