The program was sponsored by the ABA Center for Innovation, a year-old initiative to accelerate the accessibility, efficiency and effectiveness of U.S. legal services. The center developed out of the recommendations of the ABA Commission on the Future of Legal Services, a working group set up by then ABA President William Hubbard (2014-15) to expand access to justice, particularly for low- and moderate-income people.
