Cy Pres Awards
Cy Pres is a doctrine that permits a court to award any unallocated, unclaimed, or undeliverable funds from a settlement or judgment to a non-profit organization, like Legal Aid Chicago.
Legal Aid Chicago is an outstanding choice for a Cy Pres award. Cy Pres funds help further our work to provide equal justice to vulnerable, at-risk people in Cook County. We assist our clients for as long as it takes, at no charge, handling cases that can take months or even years to resolve.
How you can help:
If you or your firm are involved in a class action case and are unable to fully distribute the settlement funds, your nomination of Legal Aid Chicago as a Cy Pres recipient can help make justice a reality for our clients in poverty.
