As a master’s degree student studying theology, Conor Malloy wanted to help large groups of people liberate themselves from oppression.
But ministry wasn’t his thing. So he chose what he said is the next-most pervasive way to impact social justice: Helping low-and-moderate income families handle legal problems.
“The Jesuits really wanted to see me throw on a collar one day,” said Malloy, a former Loyola University Chicago theology student and IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law graduate. “I don’t think I was meant for it. But I think I am doing something similar, just with a little more freedom.”
With the help of an initiative announced today by The Chicago Bar Foundation, Malloy might also end up with a little more money in his pocket. He is one of 10 inaugural members of the CBF’s Justice Entrepreneurs Project.
