In this episode with Alice Armitage, we talk about what today’s landscape looks like when law schools teach technology and innovation, and what role they have in solving the access to justice gap. Alice shares a vision of what “practice-ready” and “think like a lawyer” mean today, and what they could mean in the future.

Alice Armitage is a professor and the Director of Applied Innovation at UC Hastings Law School, where she oversees two innovative programs that could only be built in San Francisco. The first is the Startup Legal Garage, which allows students to provide free legal services to early-stage tech startups under the supervision of Bay Area practicing attorneys. The second is LexLab, an innovation hub for legal tech that includes a concentration in law and technology for our students, a speaker and meetup series for the overall legal tech community, and an on-campus go-to-market accelerator for legal tech startups.
Someone Alice looks up to is Alice in Wonderland, because she found wonder and magic down the rabbit hole.
