July 3, 2014
WASHINGTON, DC – LSC President Jim Sandman and Program Counsel for Technology Glenn Rawdon discuss how technology can help address the problems posed by the increasing number of self-represented litigants in the recently released Trends in State Courts 2014.
Their article in the National Center for State Courts' annual publication highlights the findings and recommendations of the LSC’s Summit on the Use of Technology to Expand Access to Justice.
The article, "Technology Solutions to Increased Self-Representation," also showcases ways some LSC grantees are bringing these recommendations to life, focusing on the Legal Assistance of Western New York’s "Do-It-Yourself" Forms Project; Central Minnesota Legal Services’ partnership with the 4th District Court of Hennepin County to provide an innovative e-filing system; New Mexico Legal Aid’s statewide online triage tool; and Lone Star Legal Aid’s mobile and web revamping of their DisasterLegalAid.org site.
