Open Law Lab - Access to Justice tech

I’ve been searching around for the current landscape of actual initiatives & concept designs for tech tools to provide more access to justice.

I went back to a presentation, Assisted Legal Decisionmaking, by law professor Josh Blackman at Stanford last year. He showed some screenshots of legal products he’s been thinking of.

The concept app would allow the user to input their question. The app would respond with follow-up questions to nail the issue down more concretely. And then it would direct the user to the right resources. It follows the Expert System model, with guided interviews, that the A2J author and other access tech has relied upon.

    Margaret – You might be interested in our recently launched “Pocked DACA” app on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Targeted at young, undocumented youth who were brought to the U.S. as children (DREAMers), it’s received over 20,000 downloads and includes an eligibility screening tool, legal help finder, polling feature, and resources and FAQs on DACA. Great blog!
