Seattle University School of Law hosted the city’s first “Social Justice Hackathon” in November 2015. The Hackathon brought together the tech and legal aid communities to create solutions that would expand access to and improve delivery of legal services.
We talked with the Hackathon’s creator, Miguel Willis, and Aurora Martin, the executive director of Columbia Legal Services, about the Hackathon, its results, and the potential of legal-tech collaborations.
