Committee Activities:

The Committee was launched on October 1, 2013. Several subcommittees have been established to focus on specific projects, including one to develop pilot help desks in the Peoria and Tazewell Courthouses through which pro bono attorneys would volunteer to staff a two-hour window of time where they would provide advice and brief services to eligible clients.
