Legal Atlas a Top Three Finalist for Innovating Justice Award

It was announced this morning that Legal Atlas, a Missoula-based startup, is one of the top three finalists for the international Innovating Justice Award.

Legal Atlas, a Missoula Montana-based enterprise.

Legal Atlas Director Jim Wingard wrote:

The judges have made their next decision and Legal Atlas is among those being flown to The Hague for the awards ceremony. There we will have the opportunity to present to a large and dedicated audience of legal development professionals and represent this joint venture of the University of Montana and Legal Atlas, LLC.

We will also finally learn if we are 1st, 2nd or 3rd in this long competition – but we will certainly be one of these. Not bad for an idea from Missoula, Montana just one year in the making!

We hope that the event and exposure provide us with more avenues and opportunities for further development. We will keep you posted. If you have not connected with our Facebook page or Twitter account, maybe now is the time to check in there – FB is www.facebook.com/LegalAtlas and Twitter is @LegalAtlas.

Thanks to all who have and continue to support this initiative.

Legal Atlas is directly associated with the Mike and Maureen Mansfield Center at The University of Montana and has received local private and state support from GCS Research, the Bitterroot Economic Development District, and the Montana Technology Innovation Partnership.

You can see the Legal Atlas posting at the Innovating Justice website. For more info and updates on the award, go to the Legal Atlas Facebook page.

Congratulations to Jim and the entire Legal Atlas team on this huge accomplishment!
