This workshop will look at online tools that are being used to assist those that have a legal problem and don't have an attorney representing them. They can be in court or in different forums, or they might be dealing with a private party before the case escalates. We will quickly review the building blocks of online self-help: online forms, web chat, and statewide websites and their tools and then focus on new and innovate tools that are coming into place that will be game changers. These include online triage, online self-help forums, SMS Texting for reminders in case, and innovative use of email and websites to serve persons protected by Federal laws in the context of veterans.

• Gordon Shaw, Executive Director Massachusetts Justice Project
