Episode 38 “How meditation, legal design and video games are improving justice outcomes with Eduardo Gonzalez”

In this episode no. 38 I speak with Eduardo Gonzalez, who has had a variety of roles in his short career and who is now Project Manager with the Self-representation Litigation Network (“SRLN”). The SRLN is a network of professionals including judges, court administrators, the private bar, technologists and librarians all connecting in relation to access to justice and whose core work is to support collaboration and knowledge sharing.

But Eduardo has also worked in legal design both as a consultant and at the NuLawLab at Northeastern University in Boston where he was involved in an exciting project using video games to educate self-represented litigants.  For the last couple of years Eduardo has been an Access to Justice Technology fellow at Georgetown Institute for Technology Law and Policy, all experiences we discuss.

We covered the challenges in collating. updating and sharing information in a meaningful way, and insights from the participants in the SRLN justice tech working group that Eduardo coordinates. I asked Eduardo towards the end of the interview to predict the future and he rises to the challenge.   You will also be surprised to hear that he is able to draw a connection between doorknobs and self-represented litigants.

We touched on a really fascinating subject that I haven’t covered in the podcast before now, which is surprising really considering the benefits, and the title about today’s episode gives you a hint about that.

You should definitely listen to this episode if you are interested in applying user centric design principles or how to improve knowledge sharing in the interests of a better justice system.

I met Eduardo in January and was impressed with his knowledge about the principles of justice sector innovation and his passion for it, and I suspect you’ll hear that coming through in this interview.
