The Big Idea
“The Access To Justice (ATJ) Technology Fellowship Program is a 10-week fellowship program that connects law students to civil legal aid organizations that are working on technology service delivery projects to help increase access to legal service for low- and moderate-income individuals.”

“During my visit to different law schools, I noticed the lack of structures in place to provide students with the skills and resources to use innovation and technology to increase access to justice. The creation of the program will accelerate the process of streamlining and alleviating pressure on legal aid organizations by making critical legal services accessible to underserved communities and legal aid clients.

Why Fast Pitch?
“I was attracted by the purpose of Fast Pitch in that they provide an ecosystem for entrepreneurs that want to benefit the community and help others. I think this is an amazing program and we have had coaches and advisors who helped us coordinate and develop our program.”
