HACKCESS TO JUSTICE LOUISIANA 2015: An Access to Justice Hackathon
March 21-22, 2015 at Loyola University New Orleans College of Law

Presented by the ABA Journal and the Louisiana State Bar Association, #HackcesstoJusticeNOLA is your opportunity to use your legal, entrepreneurial, coding and other skills to help Louisiana’s legal aid community by creating a technology-enabled solution for the numerous challenges faced by citizens who cannot afford a lawyer and the lawyers trying to serve them.

These legal aid organizations and their lawyers want your help to improve the delivery of legal aid services to Louisiana’s population by, generally, making information about who they serve and the kind of services they provide more available to the public and, more specifically, helping them use their limited resources more efficiently while serving the unique needs of their clients.

Representatives from legal aid organizations throughout Louisiana will be on site to discuss the unique issues that they and their clients face and the types of solutions they seek.

Or, if you have your own idea to help legal aid lawyers better use their limited resources and more effectively serve their clients, bring it to life at #HackcesstoJusticeNola!

The Challenge
Create a technology-enabled solution to improve the delivery of legal aid services to citizens of Louisiana who cannot afford a lawyer and for the lawyers that serve them. The solutions can include, generally,  making information about legal aid services more publicly available to, more specifically, helping legal aid organizations and lawyers  use their limited resources more efficiently while serving the unique needs of their clients.

Mission Statement

The 2014-2015 Louisiana State Bar Association Leadership Class and the ABA Journal are hosting "Hackcess to Justice," a hackathon to encourage the legal and tech communities to develop innovative tools to help break down the barriers for low-income individuals in need of access to lawyers and legal services for civil legal issues.

The judges will award three prizes: $1500 to the first place submission; $1000 to the second place submission; $500 to the third place submission. If a winning submission is by a team, the prize money will be shared equally with all participants on the team.

Eligibility

Anyone may enter, but in order to be eligible for a prize, participants must be U.S. citizens or legal residents and have a valid social security number.

Requirements

Submissions should be in the form of a technology-enabled solution that addresses the general or specific needs of the state’s legal aid community while keeping in mind the more general goal of insuring broader access to justice.

Submissions can be anything that is technology-enabled: an app, a website, code, software, etc.

“Fort San Juan: Lost (1568) and Found (2013)”
BY Christopher B. Rodning
Associate Professor
Department of Anthropology
Tulane University

Spanish conquistadores and colonists explored and settled parts of the southern Appalachians during the mid-sixteenth century, and they encountered diverse Native American groups in the northern borderlands of the Spanish colonial province of La Florida.  Hernando de Soto and his expedition traversed the southern Appalachians in 1540, and Captain Juan Pardo marched inland from Santa Elena, the first colonial capital of La Florida, to the edge of the mountains in 1566.  At the Native American town of Joara, located in western North Carolina, Pardo and his men built Fort San Juan and founded the Spanish colonial town of Cuenca.  Following his normal diplomatic practice, Pardo formed an alliance with the community of Joara and its leadership, but written accounts hint that relations worsened in 1567, and that Native American warriors attacked Fort San Juan and other colonial outposts built by the Pardo expeditions in the Carolinas and eastern Tennessee in 1568.  Following these and other attacks on Spanish colonial outposts in La Florida in the 1560s and 1570s, the focus of Spanish colonialism in the American South shifted from exploration and military installation to missionization and trade.  Recent archaeological excavations at the Berry site in western North Carolina have shed light on the architecture and material culture of the Spanish colonial settlement at Joara, the spatial relationship between the colonial town and fort and the Native American town at the site, and the nature of encounters and entanglements between the local host community and the remote Spanish colonial outpost that was once there.  Events that took place at the site had profound implications for the course of Spanish colonialism in the American South, and for the course of European colonial history in North Carolina and North America, more broadly.

Law Student Mental Health Awareness Day

Contact: Carol Magendie · magendie@loyno.edu · 504-861-5494

Location: College of Law, Broadway Campus

The ABA Law Student Division has selected March 27 as the official National Mental Health Day at law schools across the country. This provides a great opportunity to raise awareness and educate law students and their families about critical mental health issues.

“Mental Health Day is incredibly important because it is focused on creating awareness and destigmatizing mental illness in law schools and the legal profession alike. Awareness and destigmatization are essential to creating an environment in which individuals both know where to get help and are not afraid to get help,”says Nicholas Cantrell, project director of the ABA Law Student Division Mental Health and Wellness Initiative.

Free, confidential screenings are available here from March 22 - April 6, 2015.
