The September 25th, 2020 Duke Law Tech Lab Demo Day, establishes Duke Law School as a staunch supporter of access to justice and as one of our nation’s most innovative legal education institutions. The four access to justice organizations that presented this year are as follows:
- JusticeText – Grand Prize Winner and Audience Favorite
- Video evidence management software that leverages AI to process body-worn camera footage, interrogation videos, and more
- Don’t Get Mad Get Paid – Second Prize Winner
- Create state-specific, legal documents to place liens on assets, seizing money, and property to recover child support payments.
- People Clerk
- Guides litigants throughout the small claims process giving them the tools to prepare, settle and litigate their dispute.
- Yo Tengo Bot
- Automates the interaction between immigration law firms and potential clients through a chatbot powered by artificial intelligence
These early-stage legal technology companies each have unique ways to expand access to legal services; we expect to see them succeed thanks, in part, to the support of Duke Law School, Jeff Ward, Associate Dean for Technology & Innovation at Duke Law and Director of the Duke Center on Law & Technology, and Kelli Raker, Managing Director of the Duke Law Tech Lab. The companies, in addition to the resources and publicity the program brings, have received an initial $1,000 grant.
The Duke Law Tech Lab, which began on June 24 and runs for three months, is supported by sponsors LexisNexis, Travelers, and the global law firm Latham & Watkins.
