Sketching Competing Solutions in Access to Justice

Date: Monday, November 15, 2021
Time: 10 - 11:30 a.m.
Credits: 1.5 G
Design sprints, a process developed by Google Ventures, have been used by corporate teams across the country to solve big challenges quickly through: (1) understanding and identifying a problem, (2) sketching and deciding how to creatively approach a problem, and (3) prototyping and testing ideas with users. Borrowing from this proven method of user-centered and transformative “design think,” this three-part workshop will engage participants in solving a very narrow legal problem in collaboration with community members, colleagues, and stakeholders. 

This program is designed for any lawyer who wishes to gain greater experience with hands-on access to justice innovation and multi-disciplinary collaboration in furtherance of social justice. Participants are welcome to join any stage of the process but are highly encouraged to attend all parts!  (Part I will be held during the State Bar Annual Meeting on October 8th. Attending Part I is not required to attend this session on November 15. Part III will occur in early 2022.)

In this webinar, after having identified a narrow problem in part I, the facilitator-experts will summarize the context and narrow problem preventing people in NM from accessing justice that needs solving. The goal of this session is to collaborate creatively and conscientiously to come up with concrete solutions to the narrow problem and prioritize practical methods that can be tested at the next session.

This series will be facilitated by Verónica Gonzales-Zamora, a law school professor of civil procedure and racial and gender equity scholar, and Eve Wakeland, a marketing leader and economics aficionado who is skilled in solving modern-day problems. Both bring expert brainstorming and creative energy.
