Course Description

What are innovative new ways to increase people's access to justice? This class will teach students the basics of human-centered design and justice technology, to scope new, feasible proposals to make the civil justice system work better for ordinary people.

When people have a life problem -- around housing, work, family, and money -- most are not able to afford a lawyer to help them resolve it. Many people don't even know that legal aid or civil courts could help them. Our class will dive into specific civil justice challenges, taking the perspective of different stakeholders, spotting opportunities for new pilots, and scoping out proposals of how to make the system work better."
