Legal Aid needs to remake their model for disaster relief

Last week I presented at the LSC (Legal Services Corporation)-TIG (Tech Innovation Grants) conference, on a panel about legal aid + tech in the face of natural disasters.

I spoke about the design and development work I’ve been doing with Southeast Louisiana Legal Services and the ABA Center for Innovation, on an app to help displaced people after the Baton Rouge flood prove they own their home.

I also was sketching out the thoughts and discussion that happened at the panel — see the sketches below. Thanks to Martin Costello of LSC for putting the panel together. Many of the thoughts and quotes below are from him.
