Video Highlights: Chicago Bar Foundation program jump-starts firms that serve low-income Chicagoans

Terri Mascherin, chair of the steering committee that created the Chicago Bar Foundation's Justice Entrepreneurs Project, describes how the program serves as an incubator for recent law school graduates who wish to form their own socially conscious law firms.

Mascherin offered her insights Feb. 9 at a forum hosted by the ABA Legal Access Job Corps Task Force during the ABA Midyear Meeting in Chicago.  The task force promotes innovative programs that connect new lawyers with underserved populations in need of legal services.
