A2J Author is a software tool created by CALI and IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law that delivers greater access to justice for self-represented litigants. It enables non-technical authors from the courts, legal aid organizations, and law schools to rapid build and implement pro se friendly web-based interfaces for document assembly. These A2J Guided Interviews walk pro se litigants through complicated court forms one question at a time, while offering just in time learning features to make the process easier. The over 1,000 A2J Guided Interviews cover a range of legal needs from completing a divorce petition to foreclosure defense to name changes.
