On Thursday (20 March 2019) I asked via Twitter and LinkedIn for entries for a crowdsourced list of law firm client- or public-facing web or mobile app services to help answer COVID-19 related legal issues or streamlined intake.
I share here what I sourced. I will update this post if you contact me. I reserve the right to make editorial judgments about what to include. For some entries, I also include my own editorial comments.
I have long tracked interactive digital advisory systems (list here) so start with this category first. By interactive, I mean a service that either takes users through a Q&A, generates a form, or otherwise relies on user input. (Even if a website is regularly updated, in my definition, that is not interactive.)
“The Senate” is an interactive crowdsourcing platform to SenseCheck positions of lawyers and risk + compliance professionals. The company has started a COVID-19 Senate. RF Comment: I love this concept. I’ve long been a fan of crowdsourced answer. Now, more than ever, they can have immense value. The challenge here are the limited number of responses; on quick skim, the highest number of responses I see is five. [Hat tip to @reeamos.]

Mayer Brown COVID-19 portal with updates and links to global travel navigator and COVID-19 Blog. RF Comment: I especially like the Navigator user interface of a map with optional list view. [Hat tip to @philipbryce.]
In general, I am not a fan of web PDF documents but in the interests of speed and content management in a crisis, it’s acceptable. It’s much easier for lawyers and staff to manage a PDF document than a microsite.
