Self-Help Web Center (SHWC)

Part-Time Employment Opportunity: The Center for Access to Justice and Technology at Chicago-Kent seeks a part-time staff member to assist self-represented litigants at the Self Help Web Center (SHWC). The SHWC is located on busiest floor of the Daley Center courthouse downtown and empowers those who cannot afford a lawyer by providing guided access to online legal information, referral to local legal aid organizations, and access to online form preparation tools. In addition to helping self-represented individuals, the staff member will also be responsible for training new SHWC volunteers and maintaining the Centerís use statistics.

A candidate for this position must be able to work at least 10 hours per week, be available Monday and Tuesday mornings, and be eligible to receive a federal work study grant. The office of Financial Aid can tell you whether you qualify for federal work study. This is excellent opportunity to make a difference and gain legal-related job experience.

Volunteer Opportunity: SHWC is also currently seeking volunteer web facilitators for the Self-Help Web Desk at the Daley Center. Volunteers at the web desk gain real-world experience by helping self-represented and under-represented litigants access legal information through the internet. To become an SHWC volunteer or to learn more about this program contact Dave Bonebrake; dbonebrake@kentlaw.edu
