Mission Statement

The mission of Illinois Legal Aid Online is to lower barriers to the law so that people can understand their legal options, make informed decisions, and when necessary, represent themselves. ILAO leverages technology to put the law within reach for all Illinoisans regardless of their location, income, and education.

Description

Illinois Legal Aid Online will continue its proactive leadership role to increase access to justice through the use of technology by pursuing three overall goals:

1. Provide lower-income Illinois residents with user-friendly legal information, educational articles and forms all written in plain English; "self-help" resources; and other related materials.

2. Provide information about pro bono opportunities, training and practice support and other relevant information and resources for current and prospective pro bono attorneys in Illinois.

3. Provide training and practice support tools and other relevant information and resources for legal aid advocates in Illinois.
