Legal Hackers is proud to announce that Larry W. Bridgesmith and Caitlin “Cat” Moon have been honored with the Janice M. Holder Award by the Tennessee Alliance for Legal Services for their work with Music City Legal Hackers organizing its first legal hackathon focused on access to justice! The Janice M. Holder Award recognizes an attorney, public servant, or other advocate “who has advanced the quality of justice statewide by ensuring that the legal system is open and available to all.”

Larry Bridgesmith, an adjunct professor at Vanderbilt Law School, and Cat Moon, who teaches legal design at Vanderbilt Law School, are the organizers of the Music City Legal Hackers chapter along with Lori Gonzalez and J.B. Ruhl. The Music City Legal Hackers’ LEGAL + Tech = A2J hackathon challenged participants to create solutions to actual problems submitted by Tennessee nonprofits in the legal space and awarded funds to the winners to continue their work.

Congratulations Larry and Cat, and keep up the good work!
