Tech and Pro bono: Domestic and Global perspectives – LawWorks & A4ID

November 3 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Technology plays an increasingly important role in pro bono work, and Covid-19 has been a catalyst as more services have pivoted to remote delivery. This session, hosted by LawWorks and A4ID, looks at how technology has progressed pro bono, and the role it is likely to play in the future, including how technology can address organisational issues of pro bono work.

This discussion spans both domestic and global pro bono. Globally there is a huge interest in how technology (lawtech) can facilitate access to legal advice and empower communities to use the law. There are equally concerns that lawtech could deepen the ‘digital divide’ and leave vulnerable groups further excluded from good legal advice or from the courts.

Our panel of experts will discuss the opportunities and challenges associated with technology for lawyers contributing with their time pro bono to ensure equal access to justice for all, in the UK and abroad.

Panel includes:

  • I. Stephanie Boyce, President of the Law Society
  • Claire McGourlay, University of Manchester
  • Jennifer Cheshire, LawWorks
  • Roger Smith, Consultant
  • Ele Enenche, High Court of Nigeria
  • Adam Wyner, University of Swansea
  • Margaret Hagan, Standford Law School
