On October 22, Illinois Legal Aid Online and the Illinois Coalition for Equal Justice in conjunction with Southern Illinois University School of Law Library, Sallie Logan Public Library and Carbondale Public Library announced the opening of an internet-based legal self-help center for residents of Jackson County. The new center will provide legal information directed to lower income unrepresented litigants in Jackson County.
While the center can be used by anyone with a computer and internet access, people without a computer or internet access will be able to visit three Jackson County locations to use the legal information found on the center. Computers will be available at the SIU School of Law Library, the Sallie Logan Public Library in Murphysboro and the Carbondale Public Library. The Jackson County Legal Self-Help Center can be accessed online at http://jackson.illinoislegalaid.org.
