Harvard Law School - A2J Lab
Matthew Stubenberg graduated cum laude from Maryland Law School in 2013. Interested in using technology to change how the law is practiced, he set out to develop his first legal based app. The mobile app named, Not Guilty App, helped law clerks and lawyers navigate Maryland courthouses. Matthew moved on to create MDExpungement.com, a website that automates the expungement process and has been used to expunge more than 65,000 cases since launching in 2015. The website has gone on to win numerous awards for its innovative approach in solving this important criminal justice issue. Most recently he has created the CLUE program and database for the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service which scrapes out Maryland public court records and contains more than 20 million cases. This database has been used by numerous groups to study problems ranging from bail issues to consumer debt. Matthew was also the Co-Chair of the Technology Committee of the Young Lawyers Section of the Maryland State Bar Association. Through his role there he created the first law based virtual reality training programs for Maryland attorneys. Matthew is currently the Associate Director of Legal Technology in the Access to Justice Lab at Harvard Law School.
