Webinar: Supporting Mobile Pro Bono Attorneys

Nov
14
 

Changing trends in pro bono work, user expectations, and adoption of mobile devices are call for rethinking what tools and resources are most useful to volunteers. Technology also is allowing legal aid programs to provide more comprehensive support to volunteer attorneys in settings such as clinics, outreach settings, and in court.  In 2017, several new LSC-funded initiatives launched in response to these trends and opportunities.

 

In the first part Mike gives and overview on why mobile is so important and looks at what tools are currently out there and what the development process looks like. In part two Jenny goes through the ProJusticeMN website and talks about how they created the site and what they made the choices they did. The final part is a freeform discussion where the panelists talk about their experiences and then both ask each other questions and take questions from the audience.
