About  Us

Legal Council for Health Justice conducts education, outreach, and advocacy to address discrimination, disadvantage, and disparities in health, wealth, and well-being across the lifespan of vulnerable populations. We target people impacted by chronic, disabling and stigmatizing health and social conditions to empower them to lead fulfilling lives, reach their self-determined goals, and secure and plan their futures. Our award-winning medical-legal partnership programs provide highly specialized “legal care” in partnership with health and community providers to protect individual rights and maximize access to health, education, and a responsible safety net.

Over the years, our legal team has been on the forefront of shaping, expanding, and defending against discrimination in every major health care program in Illinois, and providing millions of vulnerable adults and children with access to health coverage and economic security.
