Iron Tech Lawyer RFP
Do you have an idea for an app that will help increase access to justice? If so Georgetown’s Iron Tech Lawyer Program is interested. This coming spring semester Georgetown Law has a practicum class on creating useful web apps.
Up to seven apps will be chosen for the class, no fee will charged to participants but as part of the application you will need to identify an expert who can spend a couple hours a week helping the team assigned to the app.
You can check out the embedded video below to get a feel for some of the apps that have been created in the past or check out the Iron Tech Lawyer webpage. If you are interested in applying take a look at the full RFP.
