Our Project

The project is building a web portal for pro-bono attorneys and volunteers (translators) to be matched to active cases being handled by the IJP. Attorneys and volunteers will use the portal to browse through cases and indicate their interest, and IJP administrators will create and delete cases, and assign interested attorneys and volunteers to them. The portal will also handle onboarding the attorneys and volunteers, which includes signing confidentiality forms and agreements, scheduling interviews, and training with LegalServer.
