Illinois JusticeCorps Information

The Illinois JusticeCoprs program places college and law student volunteers in courthouses to help people without lawyers navigate the legal system. Illinois JusticeCorps Members serve as guides to make the courts more welcoming and less intimidating to people who are navigating the complex and daunting civil legal system.
