How a Legal Aid Organization Engaged Law Students to Build Legal Tools During Covid-19

As many traditional law student volunteer opportunities have diminished in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, new opportunities have also arisen. Law students are simultaneously more willing to engage in varied volunteer experiences and more adept at learning new technology than ever before, and this interactive session will discuss how to leverage and engage law students to build legal technology tools remotely. Read this piece by Tiffany Tsao, Pro Bono Manager at the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles (LAFLA), where she discusses legal services needs and technology tools in one Los Angeles-based project. Learn how you can build your own tools through the ABA Legal Tech for a Change program, which allows Legal Services Corporation (LSC) Grantee organizations free access to Documate.
