Pushing Envelopes Chicago is partnered with university National Lawyers’ Guild chapters at Loyola, University of Chicago and Northwestern to provide legal information to our inside family. These student volunteers support our group by curating LGBTQ-specific research and information.
Inside members write to us with law-related questions, and our law students then do research on the topic and respond to the inside member. However, because NLG volunteers are students and not lawyers, they can only provide general legal information and cannot provide legal advice or representation. Law students also put together a quarterly “Know Your Rights” guide that is sent out in our quarterly newsletter.
If you are a law student at one of these universities and are interested in joining this work, reach out to your university’s NLG chapter for more information!
