The Sixth Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committee, together with the Champaign County Bar Association and the East Central Illinois Women Attorneys Association is hosting an open house to celebrate the launch of the new Ask-a-Lawyer Desk. Join us for free lunch and to learn more about this new pro bono opportunity!
The Ask-a-Lawyer Desk is a project of PILI’s Sixth Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committee and similar to PILI’s Self-Represented Litigant Help Desks in Peoria, Tazewell and Macon Counties. During a 2-hour shift, volunteer attorneys meet with self-represented litigants in civil legal matters for 30-minute appointments to help them understand and navigate the legal process, fill out forms and answer questions. Volunteers are not taking cases or providing representation in court.
This open house is co-hosted by the Champaign County Bar Association and ECIWAA.
The Help Desk will be open from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Self-Help Center of the Champaign County Courthouse on the first and third Tuesdays of every month.
If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Taylor by email or 217-693-6017.
