Create a working prototype

The goal: create a working prototype that will improve the way British Columbians resolve (or avoid) disputes. Bonus points for apps that create data for further study.

 

Subject: ideas aimed at improving the way any type of dispute in British Columbia can be resolved (or avoided) are welcome. Justice Hack 2018 is "family law encouraged." If you don't have an idea but would like to participate, we are providing background materials aimed at family law dispute resolution. The goal is to make dispute resolution, or avoidance, more efficient or organized, and provide users with a better overall experience.

 WHY FAMILY LAW?

In 2013, the Canadian Forum for Civil Justice called for “systematic and cultural changes to the way we resolve family conflicts.” It found that while “Canadian family law is highly evolved and comprehensive,” how the law is applied is increasingly complex, unaffordable and inaccessible.” Crucially, it found that without access to the right mechanisms, the rules themselves limited value.
