Laura is a Legal Innovator and Developer. She is part of the 2020 cohort for the Access to Justice Technology Fellows Program. Laura will be performing legal research and developing automated documents to assist self-represented litigants with filling out court forms.
Laura’s interest in access to justice issues intensified during her undergraduate career at the University of Georgia where she graduated with a B.A. in Political Science and a B.A. in Spanish. She then pursued her passion in public interest at the Georgia State University College of Law, where she is a rising 3L. After volunteering for several legal aid organizations, she realized that many potential clients are declined legal services due to a lack of resources on the part of the organization, leaving them with no choice but to represent themselves. She is proud to be part of a team that seeks to resolve this gap in access to justice and empower pro se litigants with the confidence to represent themselves.
