ways to get involved
Legal Prep has a strong tradition of engaging members of the community with Legal Prep students. Whether you are an individual or a member of a Chicago-area business or law firm please see some of the opportunities below.
join our Law programs- Negotiations, Mock Trial, and Mapping the Future
Negotiations and Logic Games pair Legal Prep students with an attorney or law student mentor. Over the course of the school year long program, students and volunteers will work through a series of structured lessons and activities which will provide students with a basic understanding of legal reasoning skills as well as unparalleled experiences and exposures to legal professionals. Firms provide sponsorship, attorneys, and are encouraged to join with a client or other partner in its Advisory adoption, providing a unique opportunity to collaborate with colleagues and the community.
serve as a mentor
Lawyers and business professionals who are interested in partnering with and guiding one student through their high school career are encouraged to take part in Legal Prep’s mentorship program. Mentors communicate and meet with Legal Prep students on a regular basis and provide advice on college, career, and the future. Apply HERE.
host a breakfast/event
Firms and business leaders who would like to host or sponsor a breakfast highlighting Legal Prep or a sport/club/program of their choice are encouraged to do so and please contact the development office today.
volunteer for group clean up/physical improvement projects
Firms and businesses can participate in group clean up or building improvement projects. Previous projects have included painting, clean up, and library cataloguing. If volunteers wish to work on projects with students this also could be done during weekday or weekend hours.
become a law academy instructor
Members of the legal community are encouraged to provide law themed instruction to students on a singular or on-going basis. Students benefit and appreciate the insights and perspective of professionals outside of the education framework.
coach/support/sponsor a team
Legal Prep is continually advancing and expanding its athletic and after school programs. Supporters can sponsor or coach a club or team, host events in support of certain teams, or volunteer time on a one-time or ongoing basis.
