The Startup Law Academy

An innovative accelerator project by Matten Law.

Fill the Gap

Changes in Legal Services Delivery

The Blank Slate

  

The original concept – “fill the gap” as in fill the gap on your resume – was based on a desire to help one law student who had lost their summer law internship due to coronavirus cuts. We could offer a summer internship. Challenge: the learning curve in our business is too steep and client demands are too time sensitive to effectively integrate a new person to our team for such a short period.

The Blank Slate

The Blank Slate

  

We had to start over. We needed to separate the business needs from the desire to help a law student. We quickly realized that helping one student wouldn’t make nearly enough difference to the many law students looking for meaningful experiences.

Against the backdrop of coronavirus shutdowns and rapidly growing unemployment rolls, something interesting happened in California and Utah. State Bars in those two states set a new course. We're not referring to the virtual bar exam. We're referring to the advancement of initiatives to open the practice of law to technology companies to help speed innovation.

A New Idea – Accelerate

Changes in Legal Services Delivery

 Coronavirus will end one way or another. Some day. As demonstrated by the rapid shift to working from home and video meetings, the world is dynamic and agile. Not like traditional law firms, or even traditional companies. Exactly like a tech startup. Matten Law was formed to operate like a tech startup. Combining deep legal expertise with a modern delivery system leveraging technology which is built for agility and quick pivots. We believe that what we’re doing will be the blueprint for how future law firms operate.
