The Business Case for Access to Justice

Of course, lawyering to improve access to justice provides a vital community service. But for small firms that are struggling to make ends meet, it may not be viable.

However, when attorneys break out of traditional practice paradigms, we see there’s a world of problems that we’re uniquely positioned to solve. Today, viable market strategies allow attorneys to use tech to scale legal solutions to be affordable to underserved markets — so a $50 solution is reasonable for the consumer and profitable for the lawyer. These solutions help address the access to justice gap but aren’t about doing work for free.

Erin will present the business case for how your practice can address access to justice gaps while increasing business through innovation and technology.
