Law School Ministry Specialist - Chicago

InterVarsity is seeking a campus staff to serve law students and professors at the six law schools in the city of Chicago. Chicago boasts six influential law schools, including two in the top 15 nationally, and more than 4500 law students.

Chicago’s Six Law Schools:

  • University of Chicago – 650 students
  • Northwestern University – 810 students
  • Loyola University – 750 students
  • DePaul University – 740 students
  • John Marshall – 1135 students
  • Chicago-Kent – 735 students

With existing law student fellowships on four of the six campuses and a strong Christian Legal Society attorney group, the city is rich with opportunities to grow and build InterVarsity’s Graduate Christian Fellowship on these campuses in collaboration with local attorneys and the Christian Legal Society.

A strong candidate will be able to build networks in and around the university context—with law students, attorneys, and InterVarsity ministry partners in the city.  InterVarsity is looking for candidates who demonstrate Christian leadership, initiative, interpersonal skills, and some ability to self-manage. Theological education or a law degree would be an asset.

InterVarsity seeks to build witnessing communities of law students on these six campuses, so a strong candidate will show a call to and a love for law students and the legal academy and an understanding of vocational stewardship in the legal profession.
