AssistanceModulecomponentThe assistance module will determine whether the litigant likely requires formal representation by a lawyer or not. If so, the portal will provide a set of possible sources of representation with seamless hand off to the selected resource. If a lawyer is not desired by the litigant, the module will determine the most cost effective form of assistance required and hand off the litigant to that assistance seamlessly.
Comments and Issues: All forms of appropriate assistance, if available, should be described. Some may be less mainstream than others. Common forms include legal aid, court help centers, public libraries, law school clinics, bar-sponsored pro bono clinics and services, and public defenders. More controversial and innovative forms may include unbundling of legal services, the creation of non-lawyer legal services roles, and online dispute resolution websites. The portal must also be intelligent enough to recognize which forms of assistance are constrained to only certain case types or problems.
