Our research study on legal innovation that increases access to justice has been approved by Duke IRB #2022-0480 and is funded in part by SSRI.
In 2022, the Duke Center on Law & Tech conducted a research study with the aim of learning more about legal innovation that increases access to justice (Duke IRB #2022-0480).
First, we reviewed troves of podcasts, research studies, articles, and interviews related to justice tech. We then interviewed founders (n=16) of justice tech startups, investors or potential investors in justice tech (n=5), people who had a legal problem and sought to resolve that problem without help from an attorney (n=7), and legal professionals and public service professionals (n=17).
All interviews and focus groups were conducted remotely via Zoom in summer 2022, with one researcher asking questions and another taking notes; interviews were not recorded for confidentiality purposes.
