Episode Notes

How can access to justice technologies be developed through a game? In this episode of Digital Edge, hosts Sharon Nelson and Jim Calloway talk to David Colarusso about the Learned Hands project. Learned Hands is a game in which lawyers spot possible legal issues in real people’s stories about their problems. This machine learning game identifies text classifiers for developing a new taxonomy that can be used to connect people with public legal help resources.

Play the Learned Hands game at https://learnedhands.law.stanford.edu.

David Colarusso is the Director of Suffolk University Law School’s Legal Innovation and Technology Lab.
