Chicago Committee on Minorities in Large Law Firms
The Chicago Committee is a nonprofit, membership based organization founded in 1987 by ten minority lawyers. The organization was initially created to provide networking opportunities and support for minority lawyers in order to alleviate feelings of isolation at large law firms in the city. At its inception, the organization focused on hosting an annual reception for lawyers and summer associates. However, in the past 24 years, the organization has greatly expanded its scope, concentrating its efforts on providing substantive programming for its membership as well as minority law students, associates, partners.
