The University of Baltimore law school is partnering with Paladin, a New York-based company that makes a platform for matching lawyers and law students with pro bono opportunities.
Paladin’s software has an algorithm that matches lawyers with cases, and allows for tracking of case progress and hours that students volunteer. The startup is aiming to create more access to the justice system.
This will be the first law school partnership for the startup. Paladin will survey students to determine their specific areas of interests and availability.
“The University of Baltimore is an ideal partner for Paladin because of its emphasis on public interest and responsibility to the community,” Paladin cofounder Kristen Sonday said in a statement.
Along with Baltimore, Paladin also has a presence in Chicago and San Francisco. Sonday told Chicago Inno in a recent interview that they saw inquiries increase following President Donald Trump’s executive order banning immigration from seven countries.
