    Contrary to what the commenter above may be implying, the LawGives team has put ethical considerations central in their design and development of the platform.

    LawGives acts as an intermediary, and does not act as the client to a lawyer, nor as the lawyer or law firm to any client. From the outset, they have been consulting with both ethics counsel and advisors, such as Will Hornsby and Stephanie Kimbro, to tackle these complex issues and to provide for appropriate protections for clients.

    Providing a technology platform to enable lawyers to scale access to their services will lead to broader access to legal help. Despite the regulatory complexities, it is a problem that resonates across the Access to Justice community. The LawGives team has been listening to all sides and is aggressively collaborative in its approach to building solutions.

    Its a great platform. Its about time for the internet to streamline access to legal services. This is a key enabling technology.

    If the client‘s identity is not given to the lawyer, what happens to attorney client privilege since lawyer is never in direct contact? Are clients left exposed?

    Is it ethical in most states for a lawyer to perform services with no actual client? Or is LawGives the lawyer‘s client?

    Obviously Stanford didn‘t prepare these students very well.
