On April 16, 2013, The White House and The Legal Services Corporation co-hosted an event titled “A White House Forum on Increasing Access to Justice.” CALI’s Executive Director John Mayer attended the event and spoke on a panel that discussed the use of technology to assist pro bono and pro se litigants.
CALI has bridged the gap between law school clinics and legal aid/pro se litigants with its A2J Author (R) software. This tool allows for the creation of questionnaires that build court forms – think of a TurboTax or Legal Zoom type product. CALI is currently working with law school clinics to create courses using this software that will then serve as models.
