Remote Services: The Key to a Robust Access to Justice Ecosystem

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

The Self-Represented Litigation Network (SRLN) has recently published a resource guide on remote service delivery (phone, website, texts, chats, video, CRMs, portals etc.) and the self-represented litigant (SRL). Funded by the State Justice Institute, this guide is the product of an intensive year-long study of remote service delivery models in courts in Alaska, Utah, Minnesota, Orange County (CA), Butte County (CA), and Maryland and in legal services programs in Montana and Idaho. This session will present the findings and engage attendees in a discussion of how remote services fit into an overall access to justice ecosystem; how to creatively make use of old tools; how remote service tools impact not only access for SRLs, but also increase the capacity of the provider and better serve internal customers; and, as was revealed in the study, how important local community partnerships with non-lawyer allied professionals are in supporting the delivery of legal services remotely.
