April 26, 2017 - Georgetown's Iron Tech Lawyer Competition showcases student apps for justice

On Wednesday, April 26, the Institute and our Faculty Co-Director Tanina Rostain hosted Georgetown's eighth Iron Tech Lawyer Competition.

This signature pitch competition evaluates student-designed apps that promote access to justice and support pro bono legal services.

The competition featured apps that help parents represent their children in suspension and expulsion administrative procedure; facilitate intake at a non-profit facility by informing clients of the documents they need; identify signs of elder abuse and employment discrimination; and help government contractors check if they are receiving the correct wages and benefits under the Service Contract App.

A full list of the featured apps -- and the pro bono clients they were created for -- is available here.

Thank you to our pro bono client partners, our sponsors Thompson Reuters and NeotaLogic, and our panel of judges: Katherine Alteneder, the Executive Director of the Self-Represented Litigation Network; David Curle, Thompson Reuters; and Patrice Lyons (L'69), General Counsel of the Corporation for National Research Initiatives. 

Congratulations to our student participants!
