The live webinar will be hosted by Concord Dean Martin Pritikin and feature three guest speakers:

  • Jazz Hampton, Esq. – CEO and general counsel for TurnSignl.
  • Kristen Sonday – co-founder and CEO of Paladin.
  • Dorna Moini – founder and CEO of Documate.

“When Concord opened in 1998, its fully online JD program was a breakthrough in using technology to make legal education accessible and affordable,” Pritikin said. “It only makes sense that, a quarter of a century later, Concord would convene a panel of innovative entrepreneurs who are using the latest in technology to promote access to justice in various ways.”
