Innovative Pathways to Pro Bono: Using Technology to Expand the Role and Impact of Volunteers

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This workshop will highlight novel uses of technology to support volunteer engagement, including models for virtual services provided pro bono attorneys and law students, and tools that expand participation by trained lay advocates and non-traditional justice partners in information, screening and triage activities. Examples will include new remote assistance projects, the “Events” suite in LawHelp Interactive that facilitates document review, and groundbreaking projects that use technology to expand services provided by non-attorneys. We will also explore how programs can tap into a growing community of volunteer technologists, designers and others in the private sector with an interest in access to justice.
