App Ready Idea in Search of Developers

This is an interactive session with an app ready idea in search of some developers. Courtroom based "lawyer for the day" projects require volunteer lawyers to engage in compressed client interviews that must be both efficient and effective, but also result in ethical decisions regarding limited scope representation for simultaneous settlement negotiations or brief court appearances. Drawing on hundreds of hours of experience training private attorneys to operate in this "speed dating" environment, we developed interview checklists as a guide and safety check. Volunteers received training perhaps weeks before the actual day in court, so often forgot the checklist or simply misplaced it in the flurry of paperwork. These checklists lend themselves well to being deployed as an app that volunteers could review at their convenience in advance and review during their interview with the client. Let's get some creative minds together and create an app!
