It is estimated that all the programs and resources devoted to ensuring access to justice address only 20 percent of the civil legal needs of low-income people in the United States. And with dwindling funding due to decreases in IOLTA and other funding sources, the problem is only growing worse. Given this situation, technology is playing an increasingly critical role in helping to bridge the gap.

This presentation, “Doing More with Less: How Technology is Helping Deliver Legal Services,” is one I gave on Aug. 9, 2014, at the annual meeting of the National Conference of Bar Foundations.
