The A2J Clinical Project


The A2J Clinical Project was created by CALI and Chicago-Kent College of Law to partner technologically savvy law students with legal aid organizations to create document assembly projects for pro se litigants. In the fall of 2013, we successfully launched three A2J Clinics at Columbia, CUNY, and UNC Chapel Hill. We have three more A2J Clinics are being taught in the spring 2014 semester at Georgetown, Concordia, and the University of Miami. In this session we will discuss what we have learned from these six pilot schools and how we can capitalize on that knowledge for future. The A2J Clinical Project has generated such a significant amount of buzz that we have decided to expand the project to include 12 schools in the next two years. We will also discuss our efforts to create a matching service that would connect legal aid organizations in need of form automation with eager law students in our A2J Clinics. This matching service is currently done on an informal basis, but there are plans in the works to create a more sophisticated tool that will further the reach of the program.
