State Bar Board of Trustees Appoints Legal Tech Task Force to Increase Access to Justice Through Innovation

The State Bar of California's Board of Trustees appointed the members of a newly-created task force on technology and the law, which will study ways to increase access to justice for all Californians by responsibly harnessing the power of technology.

 The State Bar Task Force on Access Through Innovation of Legal Services (ATILS) is charged with identifying possible regulatory changes to enhance the delivery of, and access to, legal services through the use of technology, including artificial intelligence and online legal service delivery models.

 The task force  will have 23 members, a majority of which are non-attorneys. A non-attorney majority helps ensure that the recommendations of the Task Force are focused on protecting the interests of the public. Justice Lee Edmon will serve as Chair of the Task Force.
