LawyerCorps Connecticut is the brainchild of Connecticut Supreme Court Chief Justice Chase T. Rogers. She was inspired by the Teach for America program concept of placing new teachers in schools where they can have an immediate impact, and learn from experienced mentors. In turn, the Chief Justice has said that she hopes the chosen Fellows will be inspired to a lifetime of public service, if not in the form of a career in legal aid, then a lifetime of commitment to do pro bono work and support legal aid programs.
