‘Tech poses a massive opportunity for access to justice,’ but will we see it actualised?

Funding access to justice is difficult, and technology poses a meaningful way to tackle it, and “move the dial on something that has been a huge problem for a long time.”

Community legal centres (CLC’s) are currently under-resourced — centres have trouble retaining staff and just keeping their head above water.

Additionally, funding is notoriously short-term, creating a lot of uncertainty. The ability to plan and execute long-term projects — and tech projects are pretty exclusively long-term projects — is hamstrung by the way funding is provided.

These funding practices in the CLC space mean it’s really difficult to get tech off the ground.
