This Section lets you learn in a hurry about the things I blog about:  Law and Development, Access To Justice and Technology in this field. It combines the blog posts in a logical sequence for an overview and quick learning. If you are new to this field, the best way is to read from beginning to the end, and as you to so, to click on the links to the related blog posts that are most interesting to you. All links on this page are to posts on this blog. If you would like resources outside of this blog, check out the Resources page.

  • Relevance: Access to justice work has gained momentum in the last few years, and technology moves at the speed of light. So, I will try to keep this page and the blog as updated as I can. But at any one point in time, I have many projects on my hand, so if there are glaring omissions or mistakes, do let me know by email or other forms of contact
  • Blog funkiness: This blog has a long history, starting from LifeJournal times (yes, sooo 1999), and it has undergone several platforms changes and reversions. So with every change, I loose formatting change, links, comments and type that makes sense- so do forgive the bugs that I have yet to fix. (Especially my commentors before November 2011, apologies but your comments failed to migrate in the last process, however,they are all archived on my hard drive.) If you are curious about part of that process, you can read my very first post: Welcome to San's Blogger Blog! and years later, My Web re Design- Process, Tips and Resources

Law in Development- The Big Picture

    Historical Evolution of Law in Development and Access to Justice
    The Rise of the Concept of 'Legal Empowerment of the Poor ' (LEP)
    • Practitioners are on board too, although truth be told, many of them were doing the same things before what they did fell under the new term 'LEP':
    Criticisms of LEP
    LEP and Other Cool Innovations in Practice

    (which is a good lead-in  to:) 
    Technology in Law and Development 
    • How I, a lawyer turned global development legal person got into technology by becoming an Accidental Techie eons ago
    • Technology and Development (ICT4D)- with the rise internet usage, the development community started to experiment with how technology can be used for development. Reactions were mixed and ranged in a spectrum from thinking of technology as a magic bullet that will allow developing counties to 'leapfrog' into development, to the belief that technology was irrelevant for poor people when basic needs are not meet. 
    • Technology and Law- at the same time, there were tech developments within the legal field too
      • Technology in Law and Development: A Convergence of the two fields above, coupled with the LEP movement which calls for more innovation in development. Some examples (more to come- I haven't had time to link from the blog yet!): 
      Future of Law and Development (with Technology involved for sure!)
