From Google to Twitter to Uber, all great digital product teams have learned how to apply design thinking to solve problems efficiently. But what about pro bono teams? In this session, panelists will outline the co-development process leveraged by Paladin and Dentons to collaboratively design and develop a tech-driven pro bono platform, focusing on intelligent case intake and distribution. Panelists will also share lessons learned from over a dozen research sessions with pro bono coordinators, legal aid organizations, attorneys, and others in the ecosystem. Finally, panelists will brainstorm with the audience on how to use some of these tools effectively.
