A preview of the soon to be released Resource Guide on Serving Self-Represented Litigants Remotely.  The guide describes remote services such as telephone, text messaging, email, chat, video conferencing, co-browsing, and customer relations management software.  It discusses different business practices followed in the eight sites studied in detail – Alaska, California (Butte, Tehama, and Lake Counties and Orange County), Idaho, Maryland, Minnesota, Montana, and Utah – including how they integrate in-person and remote services, and identifies the equipment and staffing components of each program. 


The Guide also describes the outreach efforts of each site to involve justice system and community entities in meeting the needs of SRLs and how the programs provide feedback to their courts to simplify and improve court processes for SRLs.  The webinar will include an overview of the Resource Guide and detailed descriptions of two of the eight sites studied

Incubator Consortium’s
3rd Annual Conference


April 1-2, 2016 in Kansas City, Missouri

UMKC School of Law hosted this conference designed for people who are already involved in incubator or other post graduate programs for solo, small firm, and non-profit practitioners, as well as for those who want to know more about how these programs work and how they contribute to enhancing social justice through improved access to law. 


The conference described and advanced the continued growth of post graduate law programs and the new wave of affordable legal services for groups without access to legal resources. Along with the basics of creating and implementing incubator programs and non-profit law firms, the conference addressed, among other topics, the impact on law school curricular reform; collaboration between bench, bar and academics; technology and delivery of legal services; evolution of lawyering role models; and access to justice for low and moderate means clients.

The conference included speakers, panels, workshops and hands-on technology sessions to help participants develop concrete take-aways that will have immediate impact on their work.
