Who We Are
The Center has a governing council consisting of leaders in technology, innovation, design thinking, and the legal services industry.
What We Do
OUR MISSION: Encourage and accelerate innovations that improve the affordability, effectiveness, efficiency, and accessibility of legal services.
OPERATING PRINCIPLES: The Center for Innovation enables the profession, including law firms of all sizes, corporate legal departments, courts, legal services lawyers, lawyers in the criminal justice system, law schools and bar associations, to be creative, daring and powerful forces for change. The Center is entrepreneurial, experimental and agile in its work. Looking beyond traditional collaborators and projects, the Center encourages and supports new kinds of partnerships and initiatives that may succeed, or fail, but will all add to the base of knowledge needed to generate true innovation in the delivery of legal services.
