What Innovation in Legal Services Looks Like Globally

57e40ed973fa59abd35136c371af3b88Freshly home from the inspiration of the 2015 conference of the International Institute of Legal Association Chief Executives (ILLACE) in Washington, D.C. I have a heightened appreciation for the promise of Innovating Justice's annual challenge to direct entrepreneurial energy into developing innovations in the justice sector. 

Here's just a sample of this year's candidates for the €20,000 prize:

  • An initiative to make business registration accessible and transparent in Nigeria through automation
  • A public platform to promote consumer protection in the banking industry in Kenya
  • An educational app to make legal resources accessible anywhere, anytime in Canada
  • An app to simplify contesting and paying for parking tickets in Belgium
  • A model to recruit, train and place volunteer lawyers in the slums to provide free legal advice to slum dwellers in Argentina.
  • A U.S.-developed plan to develop a globally collaborative and market-friendly means of collecting and diffusing information about arbitrators

Warning: be prepared to spend more time the Innovating Justice site than you might expect. It's rich, inspiring, and beautifully designed.
