Private Public Interest Law Firm vs. Non-Profit

October 3, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Trying to figure out whether private public interest or non-profit work is right for you? Come hear Wasserstein Fellow Nancy Maldonado discuss her experience pursuing civil rights work as partner at a private public interest law firm and as board leadership at a legal non-profit organization. Co-sponsored by the Harvard Law School ACLU and the HLS Civil Rights Civil Liberties Law Review. Non-pizza lunch will be provided.

Nancy is a partner at Miner, Barnhill & Galland, P.C. (MBG), a public-interest law firm, where she represents plaintiffs in civil rights, employment, housing, and fraud cases. Nancy, a graduate of Harvard College and Columbia Law School, served as a law clerk for the Honorable Rubén Castillo of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. Nancy is the former Board President of the Chicago Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights, and has served on its Board of Directors since 2005. She also serves on the Legal Advisory Board of Arise Worker Center. Nancy also served on the Board of Directors of La Casa Norte, a social service agency, including as its Secretary from 2004 through 2005. Nancy is a recipient of the Hispanic Lawyers’ Association of Illinois Mentor of the Year award, was nominated to the Fellows of the American Bar Foundation in 2017, is a Leadership Greater Chicago Fellow (class of 2019), and was honored by Crain’s Chicago Business in 2019 as one of the Chicago’s Notable Minority Lawyers.
