Toward an informed conversation
The Center aims to serve as an objective source of information around the complicated topics of innovation, but there are other resources to be aware of. IAALS is a forward-looking advocate for regulatory change. Its Unlocking Legal Regulation knowledge center provides information on upcoming events and recent news stories on issues of regulatory innovation.
The National Center for Access to Justice also maintains a “justice index” designed to give a state-by-state analysis of access to justice issues. It evaluates concepts like self-representation, language and disability access, and fines and fees. This can be another great tool for gauging the impacts that the access to justice gap has across the country.
The Center for Innovation will continue to be a thriving and growing base for collaboration and creative thinking about the legal landscape. Tough conversations about innovation, law firm ownership, and the provision of legal services are already taking place across the country, including, for example, in California and Florida. As bar leaders, you will be placed in the middle of these conversations—and the best objective tools for those conversations are all available through the Center for Innovation. We’re always willing to help—please contact us at [email protected] or (312) 988-5192, and follow us on Twitter (@ABAInnovation) and LinkedIn.
