Abstract:

Politician Paul Lawrence Williams, Jr. was born on July 22, 1953 in Chicago, Illinois. The youngest of three children, Williams graduated from Lindblom High School and enrolled at Chicago State University, where he interned with the Illinois General Assembly, thus starting his political career. One of his mentors was Mayor Harold Washington, who ultimately encouraged Williams to run for public office. After completing graduate work at Sangamon State University, Williams enrolled at DePaul University Law School. Williams was admitted to the Illinois Bar in 1984. In 1986, Williams was elected to the Illinois House of Representatives. During his tenure, Williams was instrumental in establishing the Chicago Housing Authority Police Force as well as in forming an independent Cook County Public Defender’s Office. At the end of 1992, he returned to private practice, but remained active in politics as a lobbyist.
