Zeke Giorgi Legal Clinic

Talcott Building
319 West State Street
Rockford, IL 61101

The Zeke Giorgi Legal Clinic is located in downtown Rockford, Illinois, adjacent to the Winnebago County Courthouse. It is named in honor of Edolo “Zeke” Giorgi, a member of the Illinois House of Representatives for the 67th District from 1965 until his death in 1993. Zeke was instrumental in bringing the College of Law to NIU. The Clinic stands as a tribute to Zeke’s legislative efforts on behalf of young people and education, as well as his deep commitment to providing assistance to his local constituents. The Civil Justice Clinic and the Criminal Defense Clinic are both housed at the Zeke Giorgi Legal Clinic in Rockford.
