Technology Strategies to Promote Legal Empowerment
This workshop will highlight the role of technology in expanding the availability of legal information and resources, and enhancing the delivery of legal services. Drawing on current efforts in Virginia and other states, we will explore examples of how technology is supporting legal empowerment in vulnerable communities and equipping legal aid organizations and their community allies with new tools to tackle justice problems. We will discuss projects in three areas to illustrate what exists now and opportunities for replication and further development:
1.         New approaches to legal literacy resources and self-advocacy tools
2.         Design and storytelling techniques to promote legal empowerment
3.         Tools to strengthen community groups and lay advocates as outreach partners
