Leveraging Students to Improve Access to Justice

 

 

Illinois JusticeCorps is an innovative AmeriCorps program that places college students, recent graduates and other volunteers in courthouses throughout the state to help the growing number of litigants appearing in court every day without lawyers. Volunteers in the program make the courts a friendlier and more welcoming environment for litigants and other court patrons.

Illinois JusticeCorps members get the unique opportunity to serve alongside legal aid attorneys, judges, law librarians, clerks, and other court staff in an effort to increase the public's access to the legal system.

Illinois JusticeCorps can be found in the following County Courthouses -
