The law firm of Winston & Strawn recently got the Law Technology News (LTN) Award for the Most Innovative Use of Technology in a Pro Bono Project. for its web project, InnocencRecord.org, which works with the Innocence Project to post files of exoneration cases, including transcripts. The goal to provide resources to help figure out why erroneous convictions occur by making public the entire record of cases in which actual innocence has later been shown.
The firm estimates that there are 20,000 pro bono hours invested in the project.
Here is a video of an attorney from the firm describing the project.
It is a nice example of preventive rather than reactive use of law technology. Can we think of more?
