    Why an online legal marketplace has added tech companies and other alternative providers

    Why an online legal marketplace has added tech companies and other alternative providers

    Priori is an online platform known for using data and technology to connect in-house legal teams with lawyers and law firms who can assist with a wide variety of projects. But Basha Rubin, CEO and co-founder at Priori, says the company noticed that clients were sometimes turning to its online marketplace for help with problems that “might be best solved by a ‘new law’ company or a nontraditional legal provider.”

    This online platform aims to help pro se litigants with complex civil cases

    This online platform aims to help pro se litigants with complex civil cases

    Sonja Ebron and her wife, Debra Slone, saw firsthand how difficult it can be to represent yourself in civil cases through experiences they had being sued and suing others.
    Ebron says the couple’s legal battles spanning several different practice areas ultimately prompted them to develop a platform called Courtroom5, an online toolbox that helps self-represented litigants handle their cases from start to finish. 
    Unlike many other technological tools for pro se litigants, Ebron says Courtroom5 is particularly well-suited to help people with complex civil matters and can be utilized by consumers nationwide.
     “Our goal is to simplify the process as much as possible for people who first of all really don’t want to be in court and secondly don’t have the legal background,” she says.
    The company, which is based in Durham, North Carolina, is also working to add a feature to help users connect with lawyers for a-la-carte services.
    In this new episode of the Legal Rebels Podcast, Ebron discusses the build-up to the launch of Courtroom5 in 2017 and breaks down the different ways the platform can assist users.

Legal Rebels Podcast w/trailblazers

Like Laurence I’m a little biased. As one of the editors at the ABA Journal I’m delighted to see this project underway. It adds a dimension to our popular Legal Rebels project and gives us a platform to deepen the discussion with innovators and trailblazers in the legal profession.

Paperless law office--interesting

Terry Carter does a great job dissecting how to dive in to the paperless lawyer's world. Very solid info here. Our office "went paperless" as to our new files, and left all existing paper files as is. That way we didn't freak out. Svenson has really good advice on how to get started. Perfect lawyer topic.
