Tech Summit Spurs Ideas for Expanding Access to Justice
LSC convened the 2012 Summit on the Use of Technology to Expand Access to Justice on June 21-22 in Silver Spring, Md. Nearly 50 participants – including technology experts, academics, private practitioners, representatives of legal services programs, courts, and governmental and business entities – were invited to explore the potential of technology to move the United States toward providing service of some form to all with a legal need.
This gathering, the first of two planned in 2012, focused on development of ideas. A follow-up, tentatively planned for the fall, will focus on implementation.
