NOTE  

During the Spring 2013 semester, Georgetown Law Professor Tanina Rostain and Adjunct Professor Roger Skalbeck are teaching an experiential practicum called “Technology, Innovation and Legal Practice Practicum – Access to Justice.” Students in the seminar have heard from a range of experts on topics relating to law practice innovation enabled by technology. Students work in small teams for a legal service organization to develop a platform, application or automated system that increases access to justice and/or improves the effectiveness of legal representation. These organizations include civil rights organizations, direct service providers and government agencies. The students will be presenting their final projects in Georgetown Law’s “Iron Tech Lawyer Competition.” A panel of judges, made up of two Georgetown Law faculty members and two outside experts, will decide which is the best platform, program or expert system designed in the class.

This is the second “Iron Tech Lawyer Competition.” A video with highlights from the inaugural event is available here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipVpjtOEyA8
