Organizations struggle to find qualified individuals interested and trained in Access to Justice (ATJ) technologies. How can the legal aid community seed interest in tech opportunities and make them readily available to law students? How can organizations make sure they choose the right applicant for the job and maximize the effectiveness of the employee? This panel will: explore ways to get law students involved in legal technology prior to graduation, provide insight as recent graduates of the ATJ Tech Fellows Program, and discuss ways to reach qualified applicants. Panelists from host organizations will discuss hiring strategies, how to find qualified applicants, what traits to look for, and how to use supervisory roles that support a beneficial relationship between organization and student. In addition, panelists will provide advice on adding tech legal clerks and staff into their organization. Attendees will be asked to share experiences hiring or serving as tech legal clerks. Panelists will help organizations who want to introduce law students into their workforce and current ATJ tech and help law students who aspire to get into the legal technology field.
