Survey: Access Innovation Fellowship Program
Miguel H. Willis is putting together an Access Innovation Fellowship Program that will use law students and technology to help low-income and self-represented litigants. The program is slated to launch in the summer of 2017 but before then he could use your feedback. The survey focuses on figuring out the best way to use legal interns and which projects they are most appropriate for.
Please take the survey here, the whole thing should take no more than three to five minutes.
Miguel has been quite active in the legal tech community. Last year he put together and ran the Seattle Social Justice Hackathon. Over the course of two days eight teams made up of legal advocates and techies brainstormed and put together projects and presented them in front of a panel of judges. There were three winners who in addition to receiving some prizes went on to present at a demo day at Seattle City Hall. You can see the presentation for Court Whisperer here and a postmortem of the hackathon below
