Hel.LAS Clinic - Call for Volunteers
Hel.LAS is a pro bono clinic, which was created to address the legal needs of low-income members of the Greek community in the Chicago area. This clinic meets on a monthly basis (typically the second Saturday of every month). To date, we have provided advice and counsel in domestic relations, immigration, contract review, wills, power of attorneys, landlord-tenant issues, and bankruptcy matters. In the short time since Hel.LAS has opened its doors, it has been able to provide counsel and service to more than 100 families.
Hel.LAS owes much of its success to its wonderful volunteer attorneys, who offer their time and provide services to those seeking help. Volunteer attorneys are provided with resources and malpractice insurance through the clinic. This is a very rewarding experience, so please consider becoming a volunteer attorney!
Attorneys seeking volunteer opportunities with Hel.LAS may contact Program Chair Eleni Katsoulis at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Kocoras, United States Federal Judge of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois will be honored with the Hellenic Bar Association's Socrates Dikastes Award at our annual Judge’s Night this year. This award is presented to the judge who exemplifies the principles as identified by the great Greek philosopher, Socrates.
