CrowdJustice - Sometimes Petitions Aren't Enough
This hugely inspiring platform is the brainchild of Julia Salasky, a lawyer turned entrepreneur who's recently received substantial media interest for bringing legal action back into the hands of you and me. CrowdJustice allows for crowd funding of public interest law, so that those who wish to fight a case through the legal system can do so with the helps of others who support their grievance. Especially useful in class action cases, and for widely acknowledged legal problems that affect many people. CrowdJustice was boot strapped for a long time, yet had a surprisingly high rate of successfully funded cases. Now, it has gone on to host some very high profile cases, and has offices in both the UK and the US.
