Resource: Chicago Bar Association's Limited Scope Panels (CBA 2017)

The area of law the panels cover are landlord-tenant, domestic relations, and debt collection/consumer. The program is aimed to provide "DIY litigants" affordable services when they cannot afford the cost of an entire case or prefer assistance with only parts of their case. The CBA require participating attorneys to meet certain minimum requirements before they are included in the referral program. More information about the application process and fees can be found on the CBA's Lawyer Referral Service Program Information for Lawyers page. The program launched in 2017.
