Session Ideas and Proposals

The Legal Services Corporation (LSC) is requesting session proposals for the 15th Annual Technology Initiative Grants (TIG) Conference in San Antonio, TX, January 14-16, 2015.
 
 
LSC welcomes a broad range of session proposals, but proposals should generally relate to how the use of technology can: 
  • Provide tools to improve limited scope or self-representation for those persons whom legal services providers are not able to represent fully; 
  • Improve the efficiency and effectiveness of access, triage, intake, and internal legal services delivery operations; 
  • Encourage and support pro bono; 
  • Address Limited English Proficiency (LEP) and other special needs populations; 
  • Deliver services remotely to hard to reach populations; 
  • Provide legal services staff and pro bono advocates with better litigation and case development support. 
Proposals may explore new technology trends or showcase innovative projects to encourage replication.
 
LSC's Technology Initiative Grant (TIG) Program was established in 2000 with the goal of expanding access to justice through promoting technological innovations in legal services delivery and pro se assistance. Each year the TIG Conference brings together TIG recipients, IT staff, project managers, executive directors, legal services administrators, website coordinators, document assembly coordinators, attorneys, and others to exchange ideas and explore innovative ways of using technology to promote full access and high-quality legal representation for low-income people.
 
Session proposals are due by Friday, August 29, 2014. Click here to submit your proposal.
