Self-represented litigants in the Illinois Appellate Court face many unique challenges without adequate resources to assist them through the appellate process.
Illinois Free Legal Answers for Civil Appeals will be the first-ever virtual legal advice clinic for civil appeals in Illinois and will allow self-represented litigants to submit questions about their appeal through the Illinois Free Legal Answers platform (a project of the American Bar Association). Volunteer attorneys can then answer questions at their convenience and will remain anonymous through the online platform.
This program is sponsored by the Administrative Office of the Illinois Courts, Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Access to Justice, and the Public Interest Law Initiative (PILI).
