For those of you in Chicago looking for a worthwhile way to spend your free time,
Loyola University Chicago's Elder Law Initiative recently announced The Adult Guardianship GAL Project. According to the press release, this project
"aims to increase the number of pro bono guardians ad litem (GALs) available to investigate adult guardianship cases and to develop a pool of other professionals to assist in guardianship cases in Cook County, Illinois Circuit Court ". . .
The project provides training for attorneys and other professionals who are interested in serving as GALs. In return for the training received, the volunteers are expected to participate in 3 adult guardship cases or devote 40 hours (whichever comes first) over the next year to such cases.
For more information or to apply, please contact: Professor Marguerite Angelari at (312)915-6775 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. [bm]
