preLaw Magazine recently featured the S.J. Quinney College of Law as a leader in legal technology.

Utah Law was one of 20 law schools featured in the most recent preLaw Magazine publication for pushing the envelope in legal tech, offering cutting-edge programs and services to prepare students for practice after graduation.

preLaw Magazine specifically mentioned Utah Law’s new Creative Advocacy Lab as an example of innovation in legal education. The Creative Advocacy Lab lets students explore innovative modes of legal advocacy using tools such as design thinking, narrative, plain language writing and visual communication to make legal information accessible to those who need it. This unique clinic is designed to allow students to identify needs in underserved communities and develop legal prototypes to address the needs. In that way, it is beneficial to both the participating students and the wider local community.

Recent projects emerging from the Creative Advocacy Lab include resources for refugees and immigrants to use when encountering law enforcement and an educational video series focused on a range of civil legal issues.

preLaw Magazine also mentions the ongiong statewide efforts to reimagine the legal profession in the face of the widening access-to-justice gap, such as the new regulatory sandbox that allows entities to test new business models for proving legal services.

Utah Law is proud to be part of the effort to reduce the access-to-justice gap by usuing innovative legal technology.
