The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Chicago Law Chapter provides a forum for students interested in issues pertaining to civil liberties.

The Chapter organizes speaker engagements, panel discussions, activist activities, and educational outreach projects. It also serves as an informational resource, providing Law School students with details on civil liberty events around campus and in the greater Chicago region. The Chapter often works closely with the national ACLU offices, the Illinois chapter, and other student chapters in the planning of joint events.

Over 150 students presently belong to the ACLU Chicago Law Chapter and the Chapter often hosts up to 100 attendees at its events.

The Chapter elected its 2008-2009 Executive Board in April 2008, and filled its remaining positions in October 2008. Please see the Events pages for information on upcoming and recent events.
