Driven by passion.
We are at a pivotal moment in the history of the justice system. Unprecedented levels of investment in technology are transforming legal practice in courts and tribunals, while the advent of LegalTech is placing powerful tools in the hands of litigants, or at least those who can afford them.
At JUST: we think technology has the power to change the justice sector for the better, but we are concerned that the rate of change means that litigants from under-served communities are being left out of the process. By bringing together people, organisations, institutions and ideas, we believe that collectively we have the power and the knowledge to tackle the messiest, most complicated of problems.
