Leveraging Technology to Increase Access to Justice

The conversation around legal technology is often intimidating: AI, automation, bots, robot overlords, and so on. While there is no way to know for sure how tech will influence the industry, there is one application of legaltech worth getting excited about and investing in today: access to justice. This session will explore how technology is increasing law’s ability for social impact, from assisting with more intelligent client intake to increasing accessibility of the legal system and processes to supporting the mobilization of pro bono attorneys.

This CLE is approved for credit through December 20, 2019.
