Supporting Innovations in Advocacy through Online Forms

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

As lawyers and their clients become more comfortable with online transactions and online forms, new and creative ways to use forms in broader assistance frameworks are emerging. This workshop looks at projects that are advocate and/or pro bono lawyer driven and showcase how they are taking automated online forms projects to the next level to improve legal services in areas where there are little or no resources. Participants will discuss how automated online forms are powering new service models, the advocate training and support needed, and replication opportunties.
