Center Releases Policy Recommendation on Software for Law Student Pro Bono

Newly available on the Center’s web site is Software for Law Student Pro Bono – Policy Recommendation, the Center’s recommendation  for law schools, courts, legal services providers, and the organized bar to jointly drive forward a new initiative to develop an affordable Law Student Pro Bono Software Application to strengthen the role of law schools and law students in responding to the unmet needs of vulnerable people in the justice system.  Authored by David Udell, Director of the Center, and Holly Eaton, Consultant to the Center, the Center’s memorandum explains that the call for improved software is driven by the desire of many justice system stakeholders to involve law students more directly in responding to the Justice Gap, and by the recognition that a better system to facilitate pro bono is within reach.  The memorandum also reports that New York’s new rule conditioning admission to the state’s bar on completion of 50 hours of law-related pro bono service has demonstrated not only the need for a simple system to track students’ hours, but also the need for data showing the nature, quality and systemic impacts of law student pro bono.  The Center is interested in hearing from people interested in helping to move a software application initiative forward (contact info@ncforaj.org).
