Published on

Developers, project managers, tech enthusiasts, law enthusiasts, and justice-minded citizens from the Harvard and MIT communities focus on developing (both technical and non-technical) solutions to problems that HLS Clinics face. HLS Clinics provide free legal services to people who could not otherwise afford or access legal services. The hackathon is co-sponsored by Developing Justice, the Harvard Law and Technology Society, and the Legal Services Center. The hackathon will be judged by MIT professor and MacArthur Fellow Eric Demaine.
