This week we explore the application of the 1960s MIT hacker spirit to the legal profession, policy and conflict resolution. Jonathan Askin was an originator of the international Legal Hacker movement and shares his insights on where the movement has come from, some of its accomplishments and hopes for where it might go in the future.
