English Abstract

Provides a cross-jurisdictional examination of how technology has been used in legal aid and community legal clinics and questions whether technology has become the tool or the master in the provision of legal aid services. Explores whether technology is playing a positive or negative role in community legal aid clinics by examining the purpose and work of community clinics, and how technology can help or impede the realization of that purpose.
