Technology Initiatives Grant Conference

  • Other

Join us January 11-13, 2017 in San Antonio, TX for the 17th annual Technology Initiative Grants (TIG) Conference. The TIG Conference brings together technologists, legal aid advocates, court personnel, academics and other professionals to exchange ideas and explore innovative ways of using technology to promote full access and high-quality legal representation for low-income people. The conference also provides an opportunity to network with a national community of colleagues and to cultivate project ideas that could lead to successful TIG applications.

This year's program will also highlight a special initiative focused on improving the quality of legal aid websites. Through support from the Ford Foundation, LSC has worked closely with EY Intuitive, a digital consulting firm with expertise in user-centered design and nonprofit evaluation, to conduct a comprehensive assessment of all of the statewide legal aid websites. At the conference, representatives from EY Intuitive will share the results of this assessment, including practical findings and recommendations that will help steer the community towards creating content-rich sites that provide high-quality user experiences.
