Education Attorney receives fellowship from Chicago Bar Foundation
CCH Education Attorney Alyssa Phillips was honored with the Kimball R. Anderson & Karen Gatsis Anderson Public Interest Law Fellowship from the Chicago Bar Foundation earlier this month. Through her work with our Law Project, Alyssa advocates and provides legal assistance for the educational rights of homeless students in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs through outreach, community education, and direct representation. During the pandemic, Alyssa had to think creatively on how to reach the most vulnerable students. She assisted homeless shelters with gaining access to Wi-Fi, school fee waivers, and other educational rights information.
