In response to the growing crisis of housing insecurity driven by the economic disruptions of the COVID-19 pandemic, Greater Chicago Legal Clinic (formerly Chicago Legal Clinic) is launching a series of initiatives to help address the needs of people in Cook County who face foreclosure or eviction.

Central to this effort is the recognition of Justice Laura Liu and her work for housing justice. As of September 1, 2020, the Foreclosure Advice Desk will be known as the Justice Laura Cha-Yu Liu Homeowners Advice Desk.

“We are naming the Advice Desk in Justice Liu’s honor not only because of her extraordinary contributions as a jurist on the Appellate Court, but also for her work in the Chancery Division, where she helped thousands of families put their lives back together after facing economic devastation,” said Sharon A. Hwang, GCLC Board President and Shareholder at McAndrews, Held & Malloy in Chicago.
