Attorneys will be trained on how to answer family & housing law questions posted on Illinois Legal Aid Online’s Legal Answers website.
What is Legal Answers? Legal Answers is a secure website (IL.freelegalanswers.org) where lower-income Illinois residents can ask a lawyer for help with a legal issue. Qualified users post questions about civil legal problems. Volunteer lawyers then log onto the site and select questions to answer. It’s like a virtual walk-in legal clinic.
