Writing and Editing Legal Resources (Remote Opportunity)

Legal content volunteers make sure that the information on our site is accurate, up-to-date, and accessible to our readers. Volunteer attorneys and paralegals draft, edit, and update online legal articles and resources for ILAO’s website and mobile app. Volunteers can work remotely, and all work and communication can be accomplished online, making this a great opportunity for the busy professional who wants to volunteer on their own schedule. ILAO staff will assign discrete writing/editing projects in the volunteer’s area of substantive expertise.

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.

Training and support

To get started editing articles, volunteers must watch a 30-minute video on how to edit and how to use the system. Advanced volunteers must watch a second 30-minute video to draft original content.

  • Training is provided and required

Skills and resources required
