About this Project:

People in our community are incarcerated at a much higher rate than in other communities. With our app you'll be able to find an effective lawyer, so you won't be one of these victims. We created this app so people will have a simple and convenient way to find a lawyer to defend them in court. This idea will evolve in a way where people could be defended and you won't need to be behind bars. Our apps main focus is to find good lawyers at with the click of a button.

Feedback from the Judges:

Firstly, congratulations on expressing such goodwill towards an essential cause - empowering communities with legal services to prevent unfair treatment. Your design mockups are testament to the creative thinking that you put into envisioning what such an app could look like. The idea is commendable and showcases your passion for societal improvement through technology.

However, moving forward, consider diving deeper into the various scenarios that your users might encounter. Think about the different kinds of services they might require and the unique needs of different communities. These considerations will help make your designs even more robust and user-friendly.

Additionally, while your written explanation provided some insight into your thought process, a video or more detailed explanation could further enrich our understanding of your ideas. Remember, the more clearly you communicate your intentions and thought process, the more effectively others can understand and connect with your concept.

Wonderful job in creating an app that would have a direct impact on those in your community. Recognizing a need for legal guidance and establishing a way to bring it directly to those in need, is a huge step in a life altering direction.

It would be helpful to outline specifically which communities (i.e. names of cities, towns, etc.) this app could help. As well, with additional attention to detail, you could bring the app to life with more colors and graphics.

Overall, this project shows that you genuinely care deeply for social justice. You've created a solid foundation with the app and I'm positive you can take it even further!

Samantha, Adiba and Michelle - Great work on creating an app that directly addresses the needs of communities. As a lawyer myself, I appreciate your awareness of the necessity for legal guidance and your determination to bring it directly to those who need it most.

To further enhance the app's impact, it would be great to build on the solid foundation you've created by incorporating more detail, case information, jurisdiction, etc. Your work here is commendable, keep it up!
