Today we hear from lawyer Melissa Moss, an access to justice strategist based in Florida.
With her extensive experience in legal aid organisations, Melissa has strong views on the best uses of technology, explains what “community lawyering” is in simple terms, and on a more personal note shares how she keeps up with all the latest information and how to incorporate what she learns into the projects she’s working on.
The theme for this episode is taking time to understand the problem and learning by doing and collaborating, and it will appeal to you if you are a strategic thinker, systems designer or interested in technology and human centred design as it applies to legal aid, grassroots or community lawyering.
Melissa’s thoughtful and considered approach is exceptional in this era of a bias towards action and the rush to release the next big thing.
