The Legal Services Corporation (LSC) is requesting session proposals for the 16th Annual Technology Initiative Grants (TIG) Conference in San Antonio, TX, January 13-15, 2016. At the 2015 TIG Conference there were over 40 break-out sessions and almost 300 attendees.

Session Proposals are due by Monday, August 10th.
LSC's Technology Initiative Grant (TIG) Program was established in 2000 with the goal of expanding access to justice through promoting technological innovations in legal services delivery and pro se assistance. Each year the TIG Conference brings together a broad range of professionals from both within and outside of the legal aid community to exchange ideas and explore innovative ways of using technology to promote full access and high-quality legal representation for low-income people.
