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.
