The State Bar Board of Trustees established the Task Force on Access Through Innovation of Legal Services (ATILS) in July 2018 to develop recommendations for regulatory changes to enhance the delivery of—and access to—legal services through the use of technology, including artificial intelligence, and online legal service delivery models. That effort culminated in a series of actions in early 2020, including the establishment of the Closing the Justice Gap Working Group. The working group is charged with addressing the following:
The working group will develop specific recommendations regarding the following:
The working group shall submit its recommendations to the Board of Trustees no later than September 2022.
The working group’s members were selected and appointed to ensure that a wide variety of perspectives are fully and thoughtfully considered in this exploration of fundamental shifts to the traditional practice of law. The 20-member working group includes state, national, and international experts whose work focuses on the nexus of legal services, technology, and regulatory reform. It also includes members from important practitioner groups as well as members continuing from ATILS—who bring deep experience in California’s legal services community and expertise in legal ethics—to provide continuity with that foundational effort.
