Hackcess to Justice
The following announcement is from a collaboration of the NC Bar Association and the American Bar Association for a Hackathon on October 25 and 25th at Campbell Law School in downtown Raleigh.
You do not have to be a lawyer - We need coders because lawyers don't know how to code.
It is a great opportunity to spend a weekend of fun and coding.
Join the ABA Journal and North Carolina Bar Association during pro bono week as we present Hackcess to Justice NC
Presented by the ABA Journal and the North Carolina Bar Association, #HackcesstoJusticeNC is your opportunity to use your legal, entrepreneurial, coding and other skills to help North Carolina’s legal aid community by creating a technology-enabled solution for the numerous challenges faced by citizens who cannot afford a lawyer and the lawyers trying to serve them.
These legal aid organizations and their lawyers want your help to improve the delivery of legal aid services to North Carolina’s population by, generally, making information about who they serve and the kind of services they provide more available to the public and, more specifically, helping them use their limited resources more efficiently while serving the unique needs of their clients.
Representatives from legal aid organizations throughout North Carolina and other lawyers and legal professionals will be on site to discuss the unique issues that they and their clients face and the types of solutions they seek.
Or, if you have your own idea to help legal aid lawyers better use their limited resources and more effectively serve their clients, bring it to life at #HackcesstoJusticeNC.
