Digital Legal Protection Platform: bridge between people and a legal professionalThe Legal Protection Platform (LPP) is a digital platform, providing legal information to the people in their legal needs and connects them to affordable quality legal aid. The LPP works with the existing infrastructure of advocates, adapted to the organisational requirements of the legal profession in a country. Also, the distribution & outreach of the platform for the vulnerable groups takes place with the existing infrastructure with institutions and people working with the people in need. We tend to work with the bar association and ministry of justice in this, as well as with centres for social work, UN organisations, microfinance banks and humanitarian organisations.
Access to scalable affordable quality legal aid
The aim of the LPP is that people are informed about their rights and obligations & can enforce them.
The LPP consists of:
informing the citizen on their rights and how to realize them, and connecting them to a lawyer
basic legal information on their basic legal needs identified in the barometer research;
connects people to an affordable legal service by a lawyer
providing lawyers with know-how and templates, to guide them and allow for tailormade solutions, a CMS, and link them to clients:
Legal know-how, manuals and template models for legal procedures, with the steps, templates, and all practical information to guide the solution of the case. Each case is different but it is very helpful to have templates and knowhow on the steps as a guide, even for a lawyer, allowing her/him to focus on the specific contents of the case. It is much easier to run a procedure if all practical information is provided, allowing to develop the specifics within a given form.
Case Management System (CMS) to support the advocates in their administration and allow them to easily communicate with clients on the state of the legal procedure. The CMS allows for transparency and monitoring quality and progress.
A growing client-base: By making legal services more accessible, Microjustice opens up a new local “market” of clients that currently cannot afford a lawyer.
The LPP thus helps lawyers to obtain clients and to run a case. This is especially helpful for young lawyers to start their practice and to be provided by knowhow and clients.
Distribution and awareness raising
The LPP will be tailormade for its distribution and promotion, involving social institutions to help people access the digital network. In the barometer research the ways are identified in which in a country the LLP can be promoted and distributed.
