At November's Statewide Legal Aid Advocates Conference Illinois Legal Aid Online screened the world-wide premiere of "Doing Justice: Stories from the Front Lines of Legal Aid" for 400 legal aid attorneys and professionals. In this video 7 attorneys from across Illinois talk candidly about the joys and challenges they face as legal aid lawyers.

Doing Justice is a video project sponsored by Illinois Legal Aid Online to capture and share the stories of the attorneys and paralegals in Illinois who work every day to level the legal playing field for low-income individuals and families.
