Discoverable Client Issues Using Public Big Data

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

Large publically available databases are coming online all the time. Programs can be written to gather data from these databases to find both people who are in need of legal help as well as to identify additional legal needs of existing clients. A client who comes in for a single issue can have their information automatically checked against these databases to see if their water is about to be shut off, if they have unpaid property tax, or even if they have a case eligible for expungement. This low-cost, holistic approach, can have a substantial impact on a client’s life. We will go over successful database scraping projects, how to manage/present large datasets, and how to determine if a database can be easily scraped in your state.
