Welcome UWT students to the Innovate Law Challenge. This post follows my presentation in Professor Hampson’s classes, American Legal System and Law in Society. This post is a forum for the students in your classes to pitch ideas on the following question:
How Can the Legal Industry Improve the Delivery of Legal Services in the US?
Together we are exploring ideas on everything from how lawyers and law firms operate to creating greater access to justice. What kinds of technologies (electronic or otherwise) should be created or leveraged? How can we change legal education to be more valuable to students, employers, and clients? Should non-lawyers be able to offer legal advice? All thoughts and ideas are welcome and teams of 2-3 students are encouraged.
Post the answer(s) for your team in the comments section below with the Twitter handles of the members. The team with the most innovative idea will win $50 Starbucks gift-cards for each member and a round of applause. The winner of the challenge will be tweeted @FutureofLaw, so be sure to follow my feed. The contest will be open until February 28, 2015. The winner will be announced on Friday, March 6th.
