At the Justice Entrepreneurs Project, we prepare talented and entrepreneurial lawyers in the Chicago area to manage innovative, socially conscious, and successful law practices. We believe in the power of entrepreneurial lawyers to make a difference as solo practitioners in the quest to ensure access to justice for all.  Are you a recently admitted lawyer interested in obtaining the skills and resources necessary to build an innovative and successful law practice? Are you interested in making a positive impact on your community as a social entrepreneur? We offer access to mentorship, continuing legal education, a network of like-minded individuals, and subsidized resources to kick start a legal practice targeted at the underserved middle market of potential clients. The JEP is seeking applications for its next class of participants who will begin the program November of 2017. Additional information about the JEP, including the JEP’s mission and goals, is available at www.chicagobarfoundation.org/jep.

Applications must be in by Friday, September 8, 2017 to be considered for the November 2017 JEP cohort.
