Overthinking Conflict

Nov 23, 2017

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.

WHat is a Hackathon? A hackathon is an intense, really short event where groups come together to collaboratively design usable software programs to address specific challenges.

A few interesting things mentioned in this episode:

White Hat Hackers


BC Civil Resolution Tribunal

Noam Wasserman

Code for America
