Attorneys Provided Free Legal Services re #45's Travel Order

It was gratifying to read accounts about the assistance lawyers spontaneously rendered to those immediately affected by the Order moments after it struck.

Sample this:

“Springing into action” isn’t a phrase often associated with legal technology. But attorneys defied traditional timetables around technology development to bring legal services to those detained at airports around the country following President Trump’s executive order barring entry to citizens of seven majority-Muslim countries on Jan. 27."

And this:

"Since the original ban went into effect, attorneys have used a combination of mobile technology, social media and websites to schedule volunteers, connect affected individuals with legal support, and communicate amongst one another. Although efforts to bring together a legal response have occurred in a couple different waves, technology played a major role in helping attorneys coordinate their efforts."
