Justice Data and Design Lab, BC Access to Justice Centre for Excellence

The Justice Data and Design Lab brings fresh eyes and skillsets to the access to justice problem by designing and building a Research Engine that uses unsupervised machine learning to identify legal needs. Students from law, data science, computer science, and public administration collaborate and use the Research Engine to collect, aggregate and analyze data and user experience on people’s everyday legal problems.

As the team identifies opportunities to improve the justice system, JDD also works with teams of students from faculties outside law to collaboratively create prototypes that demonstrate how technical innovation can make people’s lives better.
