Self-Represented Litigant Help Desks

Volunteers needed! Volunteers meet with self-represented litigants for 30-minute appointments to help them understand and navigate the legal process, fill out forms and answer questions. Volunteer shifts are currently available twice a month at the Champaign, Macon, Madison, Peoria and Tazewell County Courthouses.
