NEW PARTNERSHIP WITH THRESHOLDS

Justice-involved individuals living with serious mental illness now have access to civil legal assistance, thanks to a new partnership between Legal Council for Health Justice and Thresholds.

NEW YEAR, NEW RULES

This past Tuesday, a state panel approved groundbreaking policies in the fight to protect children and prevent childhood lead poisoning. Legal Council published an op-ed in Crain's Chicago about the significance of these rules and what they mean for Illinois kids.

LEGAL COUNCIL IN THE NEWS

Last week, the Huffington Post featured Legal Council’s first-of-its-kind Early Intervention (EI) pilot for infants and toddlers. The pilot provides lead-exposed kids with the support they need to overcome potential learning disabilities and developmental delays before they go to school.
