Have you ever wondered what it would be like to navigate the courts without an attorney? Join Prairie State Legal Services Thursday, October 28, from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM for a FREE virtual interactive training exercise where you will step into the shoes of a single parent going to court alone to defend against an eviction. During the simulation, you will navigate several interrelated systems including the court, legal aid, public benefits, and housing.
• The complexities of the systems that low-income people are asked to navigate and the ways in which they do not always work together
• How access to resources (or lack thereof) impacts options and choices for families living in poverty
• The challenges facing pro bono or low-income clients and self-represented opposing parties outside of the legal system
• Different ways the courts and legal system are working to remove barriers faced by people without lawyers and how legal professionals
can support these efforts
