Join the Fourteenth Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committee to celebrate Law Day 2022! Attendees will learn how to use the Illinois or Iowa Free Legal Answers website and answer civil legal questions. This program will take place immediately following the Law Day Luncheon. You must register separately to attend the luncheon through the Rock Island County Bar Association.
Free Legal Answers is a secure website where low-income Illinoisans can ask a lawyer for help with a civil legal issue. Volunteer lawyers then log onto the site at their convenience and answer questions waiting in the queue. It is a virtual walk-in legal clinic. A project of the American Bar Association, Free Legal Answers was created to increase access to advice and information about non-criminal legal matters for those who cannot afford legal assistance.
Paralegals and other support staff can also assist attorneys with answering questions!
Please contact Managing Attorney, Jessica Schneider, via email or phone at 312-832-5125 with any questions prior to the event.
Please pre-register for the in-person event below. If you have any questions or problems with the form, please reach out to Grayson Alexander by email or phone at 312-832-5136.
