Together we can close the justice gap. Millions of people and nonprofits need pro bono legal help, and there are 1.3 million lawyers in America who can lend a hand. We believe that by making it easier for lawyers to connect with pro bono that they’re passionate about, we can increase the impact of pro bono and make the world a more just place.

4 Reasons to Buy (vs Build) Pro Bono Tech Tools Similar to considerations with other enterprise SaaS tools, we sometimes hear from firms that they’d prefer to try building pro bono management tools internally rather than plug into an existing network. In theory, this sounds great, but more often than not, firms end up spending significantly more time and money on any pro bono internal build than the benefit received, with little wiggle room to iterate…
I’ve compiled the first public database of Justice Tech startups — I hope it’s a useful resource to build community, transparency, and scale access to justice.

This influx is terrific for modernizing the legal services industry, but…
