Pro Bono Week: Coding Justice

  • When: 23 October 2017, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
  • Where: Dechert (1900 K Street NW)
  • Cost: Free

Coding Justice is a DC Pro Bono Week collaboration event between social-justice nonprofits and the tech world, in partnership with Washington Council of Lawyers, DC Legal Hackers, and Dechert. Members of the legal community will join tech-savvy volunteers to explore tech solutions to legal problems: We’ll discuss a series of legal problems, consider how to solve them using technology, and then select one legal problem to explore in more depth over time.

We are looking for volunteers from both the legal community and the tech world: lawyers from all sectors are welcome. In particular, we’re looking for tech volunteers with computer science or civic hacking experience in the following areas:

  • Design thinking
  • Data management
  • Technology solutions
  • Technical design

A light dinner will be provided to nourish our creative problem solving.
