Feb 4th Challenge Day

Thank you for joining us for the Justice Innovation Challenge. 

UPDATE: Video announcement of Winning Teams


We are looking forward to spending Friday 4th February with you all for a day of discussion, teamwork, and innovation.

The Justice Innovation Challenge is an online daytime event from 9.15 am to 4.30 pm. You will need to be able to work remotely and connect with your team throughout the whole day as you work together to find innovative solutions to some of the challenges facing the pro-bono legal advice sector. 

We have pulled together a few things to get you thinking, and will also share these on the A2J slack – you should have received an email inviting you to connect there.

To kick things off, watch this introduction to the workshop from Rachel Wood of UWE’s Business and Law Clinic:

The Zoom link for Feb 4th will be emailed to you. Every participant who completes the challenge will receive a £25 gift voucher to say thank you – and the best idea will be developed.

We have some useful resources to share about the challenges that came out of our workshop with legal advice clinics:

Here is an Introduction to Design Thinking by Lisa Cole

The WECA REPORT on Legal Tech 2021 in SW UK will give you another viewpoint on some of the challenges around access to justice.
