Technology offers huge potential to support new ways of working, reach more people and deliver better client services.

In the face of extreme levels of unmet legal need, we need to experiment with new ways of getting legal help to people who need it. Our digital projects range from creating systems that help our lawyers work faster and smarter, to building ways of delivering online legal help directly to those in need. By investing in technology, we’re investing in better services.

Digital self-help tools

Our digital self-help tools are key to our strategy to increase our impact. There are more people who need help than there are lawyers available. So we’re focused on translating our legal expertise into interactive products that empower people to meaningfully help themselves.
