The Innovations in Technology Conference grew out of LSC's Technology Initiative Grant (TIG) Program, which seeks to expand access to justice by promoting technological innovations in legal services delivery and pro se assistance. The conference brings together technologists, legal aid advocates, court personnel, law school professors, pro bono coordinators, and other professionals to showcase technology projects and tools being implemented across the country and internationally to promote access to justice and high-quality legal representation for low-income people. The conference also provides an opportunity to network with a community of colleagues and to cultivate project ideas that could lead to future TIG awards. 

Professionals from every arm of the legal aid field attend the ITC:

  • Legal aid advocates
  • Legal technologists
  • Court self-help staff
  • Pro bono coordinators
  • Private attorneys
  • Law school students and professors
  • Document assembly developers and project managers
  • Law librarians
  • Anyone with an interest in how to use technology in the delivery of legal services

Session topics cover a range of issues on how technology can increase access to justice, including:

  • tools to improve limited scope or self-representation for those persons whom legal aid organizations are not able to represent fully;
  • improving the efficiency and effectiveness of access, triage, and intake;
  • encouraging and supporting pro bono;
  • cutting edge technology developments for legal services using artificial intelligence;
  • delivering legal services remotely to hard-to-reach populations;
  • providing legal services staff and pro bono advocates with better litigation and case development support; and
  • improving management and internal operations in legal aid offices, including how organizations can meet LSC's new performance criteria around technology.
