I try to stay on top of different legal tech that is being invented, tested, or used.
What I've found from that research is that a lot tools currently in existence only work on certain cases, with certain conditions, and or only in certain jurisdictions.
It's not enough, but it's a slow and encouraging start.
Even though different pieces of legal technology can exist, to make certain processes faster or even cost a client less, it's no substitute for an individual learning the legal system on their own.
Even when verifiable credential technology "hits the streets". It will eradicate the majority of issues found at every level of legal, law enforcement, and forensics. It will, but even that is still no substitute of a person learning the legal system on their own.
Technology won't ever fully eradicate the need for human beings when solving problems.
Knowledge and how to apply that knowledge is key.
Lawyers across the board are going to do better not only in community reputation, but in an increase in business if they're genuinely open to building a solid relationship with prospective clients -- one that includes non-legal professionals wisely and confidently being able to step into their world with both feet.
- As a pro se individual, you aren't trying to take the lawyer's job.
- You're not trying to defeat the entirety of the legal system.
You're just trying to make the court play by its own rules, be heard fairly, and hopefully get the justice that the last lawyer didn't feel like pursuing fast enough for you.
This course makes it happen.
