Mayme F. Spencer Memorial Street Law Clinic

The Mayme F. Spencer Memorial Street Law Clinic is open the third Thursday of each month between the hours of 9:30 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. on CNE's first floor.  The clinic is staffed by Baker & Daniels lawyers, including Patrick Fitzsimmons; Chapman & Cutler lawyers, including Alyson Miller, an attorney at Chapman & Cutler LLP and granddaughter of Mayme Spencer; and Will Miller, a corporate lawyer, and son-in-law of Mayme Spencer.

The free street law clinic bears the name of Evanston's first African-American woman alderman - a civil rights pioneer and life-long provider of pro bono legal services to Evanston's limited means community. Mayme Spencer was married to Dr. Warren F. Spencer, one of the first black graduates of Northwestern University Medical School (and founder of Community Hospital in Evanston).
