Attorneys Turn to Big Data to Fight Poverty

With LegalServer, East Bay Community Law Center is making data-driven decisions to better serve the poor.

In a legal system skewed toward the wealthy, legal advocates fighting poverty need to be smart about how they allocate resources.

LegalServer’s specialized data mining tools are helping East Bay Community Law Center (EBCLC) make data-driven decisions - while pleasing their grantors along the way. “LegalServer has improved our ability to integrate data into our storytelling and communicate our real impact to funders,” says EBCLC Data Scientist Lawrence Karongo.

EBCLC also trains over 150 law students each year in their clinics, preparing the next generation of advocates to continue the fight. LegalServer helps streamline and manage those operations, too.
