Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Illinois Legal Aid Online (ILAO) puts the law within reach for all. ILAO streamlines the delivery of free and pro bono legal services to lower-income Illinois residents, and delivers easy-to-understand legal information and assistance to those who can't afford a lawyer.
We need Illinois attorneys to help us review and revise our content to ensure legal accuracy. Our volunteers also help us draft new content in areas we haven't covered yet. We also accept applications from attorneys licensed in other areas, as well as non-attorneys who have expertise in an area of the law (Illinois or federal) or have plain language expertise.
As a Legal Content Volunteer, you can work from any location at any time. All you need is a desktop computer or laptop with a reliable internet connection.
Work as little or as much as you would like. (Volunteers receive as many projects as they want in a given year and contribute an average of 4 hours per project over a 3 week period.) Receive training and ongoing support to edit and revise our content. Enjoy the flexibility that comes along with this volunteer opportunity and have fun while working convenient hours.
