Solving Real Problems with the Social Justice Hackathon
Putting the bad guy away and receiving justice is a big reason why we have legal aid in the united States. But unfortunately there have been cases where justice has not been served. Sometimes people don’t have the money to get the proper legal aid they need. Law student at Seattle University, Miguel Willis, was really troubled by this situation and believed that the answer lied in getting people better access to legal aid. But how? By creating the Social Justice Hackathon. In November, the Social Justice Hackathon began by bringing brilliant minds together to rack up new ways to bring justice to all. For two days, 70 technology innovators as well as law professionals addressed issues within the legal aid system.
