ImmigrationJustice.us: How Lawyers can Respond to Trump's Immigration Laws
2 days ago
The new Executive Orders on immigration introduced by the Trump Administration have pushed some lawyers to act on behalf of immigrants in need of legal help. But many lawyers who want to help don't know where to start. In this episode of Law Technology Now, host Monica Bay talks to Chad Burton and Ed Walters about the creation of ImmigrationJustice.us, a website built to organize legal professionals who are seeking ways to volunteer their services. They discuss how the website was built in a single night for the American Immigration Lawyers Association, the team involved in its creation, and the template that they hope can be used for similar issues in the future. They conclude the episode by saying how important groups of active trendsetters, like the ABA Center for Innovation, will drive change within law. Ed Walters is the CEO and co-founder of Fastcase, an online legal research software company based in Washington, D.C. Under Ed’s leadership, Fastcase has grown into one of the world’s largest legal publishers, currently serving more than 800,000 subscribers from around the world. Chad Burton is the CEO of Curolegal and is a former litigator who developed one of the nation’s first “new model” law firms, leveraging cloud-based technology and modern business practices to develop a lean virtual law firm. He also serves on the Governing Board for ABA’s Center for Innovation.
