LegalRnD Lab

The LegalRnD Lab is dedicated to improving legal service delivery and access across the legal industry. We accomplish this mission through research and development of efficient, high-quality legal-service delivery tools and systems. We do the research and development that has been lacking in the legal industry. Steeped in the tradition of, and backed by the literature in legal laboratories the LegalRnd Lab builds the tools needed to advance legal technology and improve access to justice.

LegalRnD brings together professionals from a broad range of disciplines. Contributors start with well-established concepts—such as lean thinking—and use them to improve legal-service delivery. We train our students in these concepts and study them with our partners, including legal aid organizations, solo practitioners, corporate legal departments, law firms, courts, and entire justice systems.
