Scheme to provide 'virtual' help to vulnerable spearheaded by Ex-Society president.

An access to justice charity, The Jeanie Project, is hoping to crowdfund £7,500 by 9 August to pilot Riverview Law's KIM technology among civil society organisations to provide advice, information and connections to lawyers simply and effectively.

Virtual assistants could help food banks and community groups ensure poor and vulnerable people can access the law as part of a new project spearheaded by senior figures in the legal profession.
 
The charity's trustees are former Law Society president Lucy Scott-Moncrieff, Richard Miller, the Society's head of justice, and Martin Barnes, chief executive of LawWorks. 
 
Scott-Moncrieff, founder and managing director of London firm Scott-Moncrieff & Associates, says the initial discussion with a client is important, 'listening to them really carefully, working out what the issues are'.
 
However, she adds, 'although it is really important, I do not think it has to be done by a lawyer. It needs to be done by someone who has got the time, interest and energy to do all of that. We're trying to get civil society organisations, charities and food banks to do some of that first piece of work'. She also continues to say, 'It has become very clear with the loss of legal aid and pressures on advice agencies that a lot of people are going to their MPs to get help with their legal problems,' 
 
Riverview Law has provided the KIM technology for free and will be 'tweaked' for organisations' varying needs.
