What if legal aid groups banded together, to make their office, software, services, and other purchases together? If they buy in bulk and together, they can negotiate better prices, licenses, and other terms. A platform could bring these groups together to make smarter decisions (based on the wisdom of the group, so that each group doesn’t have to relearn the space or redo the negotiations). It can also save them money and time, and get more favorable conditions.
This idea came out of the Florida 2015 Legal Aid Summit, and was a finalist for the awards.
