Coding Justice Event

In 2016, Delargy organized the WLC's Hacky Hour event in which legal technologists shared ways technology has assisted with access to justice issues. Following the success of last year's event, Delargy co-organized "Coding Justice" with Michael Lukens of Capital Area Immigrants' Rights (CAIR) Coalition and in partnership with DC Legal Hackers.

The event presented two problems that could be "hacked" by technology: fraudulent process of service aka "sewer service" and youth homelessness. Attendees, which included tech savvy individuals and attorneys working in the issue areas, formed two teams to discuss how the problems could be solved. There was a follow up event entitled "Coding Justice Part II" on February 15, 2018 at Georgetown Law.
