81: How to Craft Ethical Tech Solutions to the Many Issues with the Legal System w/Jason Tashea Public Defenseless

    • Government

On this episode, Hunter spoke with Jason Tashea to discuss the exciting intersection of tech and the legal system. As the Director and Co-Founder of the Georgetown Judicial Innovation Fellowship, Jason is constantly thinking about ways to ethically integrate technology into the legal world. As an institution predicated on tradition, precedent, and intentionally inefficient legal protections, the legal profession has been incredibly slow to adopt the forward thinking, efficiency mindset so prevalent in the tech world.
 
 
It is the juxtaposition of the two that sits at the center of today’s conversation. How do we ensure that the efficiency goals of tech don’t trample the rights of others? How do we make sure that the vitally necessary data collection practices are implemented safely without privacy violation? All these questions and more are explored in this episode!
