Joshua Weaver, director at the Texas Opportunity & Justice Incubator (TOJI), described the incubator’s programming to help lawyers provide access to justice to the large latent market for legal services in Texas. TOJI is accepting applications now for the next cohort of justice-minded and entrepreneurial Texas lawyers, a 12-month program that starts in January.
Claudia Johnson, program manager for Law Help Interactive (LHI), discussed the use of online forms for improving access to justice for people without lawyers. LHI has served 700,000 registered users and at least as many anonymous users who’ve downloaded or filed LHI forms to get protective orders or respond to evictions and many other civil issues.
