Spanish Translation Volunteer (Remote Opportunity)

The goal of the Volunteer Translation Program is to expand Illinois Legal Aid Online’s services to Spanish-speaking Illinois residents and increase the quantity and quality of legal resources on our new website to provide the same services that ILAO provides in English to Spanish speakers. This will allow Spanish-speakers in Illinois to obtain more positive outcomes to their legal problems. This volunteer opportunity can be done remotely and is open to attorneys, law students, and other legal professionals.

ILAO delivers easy-to-understand legal information and assistance to lower-income Illinois residents through access to basic legal information, step-by-step instructions on how to address their legal problem, and automated documents and forms that guide the user through the process.
