What is a Legal Engineer?
Legal Engineers apply a scientific approach to solving problems in law: Education – Teaching technical skills to lawyers and legal skills to scientists. Practice – Improving speed and efficiency of legal service delivery and legal operations. Courts – Enhancing the judicial process, Access to Justice (A2J), and legal analytics. Regulation – Enabling government regulators to communicate and collaborate with the public using technology. Want to learn more about what Legal Engineers do? Visit our Practice Areas page

Thanks for your Interest and Support
Many who need legal services cannot afford them. If we apply the right innovations and design to legal processes, I believe we can make the entire legal ecosystem (education, practice, and justice) work for the betterment of society overall- this is the founding principle of the ASLE.

I look forward to your feedback and support!
