The Access to Justice & Technology Summit (A2J & Tech Summit), organized by PILnet and DLA Piper, brought together pro bono providers, government and UN officials, tech industry experts, funding providers, futurists, academia, civil society, human rights defenders, and social entrepreneurs. Through interactive workshops, dynamic discussion sessions and interviews, participants had the time and space to think together on novel technology solutions to access to justice problems on a global scale.
At this Summit, participants worked collectively to:
- identify problems in the area of access to justice;
- discuss what technological solutions can be proposed to tackle them;
- identify how to remove the barriers to implement projects; and
- identify opportunities to make use of the novel technology to improve legal aid and the provision of pro bono legal services.
