Sheffield Legal Hackers: Access to Justice - Docassemble Showcase

As part of our “Year of A2J” initiative in 2020, Sheffield Legal Hackers partnered with Anson Evaluate and Tonic Workflows in order to deliver a free Docassemble course.

At this showcase event the teams that took part will discuss the solutions they built to tackle a range of A2J issues including Asylum, Domestic Violence and Revenge Porn.

We invite you to come along and see what our teams have built and also to learn more about how Docassemble can help law firms and A2J charities deliver support to their clients.

What is Docassemble?

Docassemble is a free, open-source expert system for guided interviews and document assembly. It provides a web site that conducts interviews with users.

Documents can be built using the information gathered (such as word docs or PDF's) which users can download or e-mail.

Other than document assembly, Docassemble can be used for a wide range of applications - for example they might submit an application, direct the user to other resources on the internet, store user input, interact with APIs, or simply provide the user with information.
