For 20 years, First Defense Legal Aid has run a 24/7 hotline that provides free legal representation to individuals in Chicago Police custody. Our hotline is staffed entirely by volunteer attorneys who donate their time to help protect our most vulnerable citizens by ensuring police accountability and prevent false confessions. The training is a step by step guide on how to provide this representation. Join our team and learn how you can become a part of this important movement!
