Kimball and Karen Anderson, both 1977 graduates of the College of Law, were featured in the spring issue of the American College of Trial Lawyers Journal for their support of the innovative COVID-19 Practicum that was launched in the summer of 2020. The Andersons were a major source of funding for the program, which placed 15 law students at legal aid organizations throughout the state of Illinois to provide services to residents who had been adversely affected by the pandemic.
Kimball Anderson is a nationally recognized access to justice pioneer and a long-time supporter of public interest opportunities at the College of Law.
He said, "The problem of crushing school debt plagues many public interest lawyers. We are still trying to chip away at the problem seventeen years later. Our effort has been extremely rewarding to us because we have watched almost all of our Anderson Fellows become outstanding leaders of their public interest agencies."
