Advances in legal technology have substantially impacted the legal profession and the way that lawyers and legal professionals deliver legal services and improve access to justice. A key part of transforming the legal profession is educating future lawyers on how to leverage legal tech, and UniCourt is thrilled to announce we are partnering with J. Reuben Clark Brigham Young University Law School (BYU Law) to provide their students and faculty with access to more trial court data and analytics through our Legal Data as a Service offerings.
BYU Law is a forward-thinking law school educating its law students with the stated goal of “producing leaders within communities and throughout the world.” With programs like the BYU Law Legal Design Lab, where students are learning design thinking and using it to help solve real-world legal problems for consumers, BYU is preparing its students for the future of law and directly taking aim at the yawning access to justice chasm.
BYU Law students and faculty now have full access to UniCourt’s features to streamline their case research and tracking, learn about the business of law, and power innovation and research with our Legal Data APIs.

Bringing Legal Tech to Legal Education
We’re excited to launch this partnership with BYU Law to bring legal tech to legal education. We look forward to the new and innovative ways law students and faculty will use court data to enhance the “innovative course offerings and engaging experiential learning opportunities” BYU Law is known for.
This new partnership is also part of a broader push UniCourt is making to offer law schools across the country with real-time access to state and federal trial court records.
