Fighting Injustice with Trickle-Up Innovation

Friday, March 11
3:45PM - 4:45PM

JW Marriott
Room 303-304
110 E 2nd St


Four legal technology entrepreneurs share their vision for fighting injustice through trickle-up innovation. Social justice is often constrained by the inherent inefficiencies and inequalities of both legal systems and the legal industry. So far, the emerging field of legal technology has primarily increased the efficiency of the status quo. Even then, the law has persistently resisted the tech-driven competition and disruption that has hit almost every other industry. However, by first targeting social justice issues and purposefully design for grassroots, trickle-up innovation, we can drive deep structural change within and beyond the law.
