The fourth Iron Tech Lawyer Competition, held April 23, 2014 in McDonough, was billed as the "Access to Justice Edition." The focus of this years competition was to develop products that expand access for those not able to afford a lawyer or similarly disadvantaged from accessing legal resources.
During the Spring 2014 semester, Professor Tanina Rostain and Adjunct Professors Mark O'Brien, Roger Skalbeck, and Kevin Mulcahy taught an experiential class called "Technology, Innovation and Practice: Access to Justice." Student teams collaborated with legal service providers and public interest law organizations to build legal expert systems to address a critical need of the organization.
