In many areas of the world, people must overcome incredible obstacles to engage even the most basic legal services. There are a number of community leaders, civil society organizations, and legal aid programs that work to reach underserved communities, despite limited resources. Historically, these groups have struggled to manage communication with both clients and formal justice systems, due to high costs and large distances.
At the same time, mobile phone penetration currently exceeds 5 billion handsets globally, offering an unprecedented opportunity to bridge the distance, time, and cost of remote communication. FrontlineSMS:Legal focuses on leveraging the power of mobile communication technologies to improve the delivery of formal and informal dispute resolution services. This new field, which we call mLegal, has the power to bring formalized justice and resolution to people and places historically beyond reach.
