“The access to justice crisis is daunting – the US is ranked #115 of 140 countries when it comes to affordability of access to the legal system, and in at least 75% of matters at least one party is self represented. There’s a massively underserved population in our communities that are not able to access their rights. Technology can and should be part of the solution.” – Maya Markovich, Innovation Lab Advisory Board
