IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law has assembled a line-up of leading legal aid experts to teach its Practice and Professionalism course.  The course is offered to students in the law school’s Praxis experiential learning program this fall. The course invites regional and national experts to explain how technological change affects law firm operations and how the legal community can anticipate the next steps in the ethical delivery of legal services.

Florida Justice Tech Center Interim Executive Director, Joyce Raby, has been invited to be a guest lecturer on November 12 for their third segment focused on the legal aid, public interest practice, and pro bono sector.  During the lecture, Joyce will talk about the Florida Justice Tech Center and its mission to increase access to justice through the innovative use of technology.  Dave Bonebrake will also lecture during this segment.

Joyce will also be joining a team of legal aid executives who will guide the student grant proposal teams.  Other legal aid leaders working on this are: Diana White, Chicago’s LAF, Susan Nofi, New Haven Legal Assistance, Angela Tripp, Michigan Legal Help, Ken Perri, Western N.Y Legal Aid, and Ed Marks, New Mexico Legal Aid.

It is an amazing opportunity to get the next generation of legal aid technology leaders inspired to take on the challenge of closing the justice gap and we are honored to be a part of it!
