Technology and Access to Legal Services

1.0 substantive credits in PA, NY, NJ, IL, FL, CT

This panel will present and discuss concrete ways in which technology is being used to bring legal services to the home or smartphone via websites or apps that provide legal information or advice. The panel will focus on how the featured apps and websites have enabled low-income or lower-resourced people to access legal information—how was the product created? Who funded it? What made it successful and accessible? Who has used the product so far? How? etc. This panel will also discuss the issues and difficulties, legal and other, that are presented when creating a tech-based legal service. Finally, this panel will look forward, discussing the future of using technology to increase access to the law for low-income persons, with a particular emphasis on expert systems and self-help screening tools.
