Collaborating to Bridge the Justice Gap with Legal Technology

Grand Ballroom B

Improving the Access to Justice Gap is a complicated problem that won’t be solved by any one initiative. But law schools are among the many stakeholders on this critical issue, and some are collaborating within the law school curriculum to inspire tomorrow’s lawyers to consider access to justice as part of their future work. The connections between access to justice and legal technology touch many aspects of the traditional legal curriculum, from ethics to legal writing to clinics to specialized legal technology electives. What’s more, innovative law schools are pairing with organizations outside of the classroom to involve students in creative approaches to improve the public’s access to and experience with legal systems. This panel will discuss how law schools have approached the intersection between access to justice and legal technology, and spark ideas for continued collaboration across disciplines.
