Caroline Robinson

Massachusetts Law Reform Institute
Codirector Massachusetts Legal Aid Websites Projec
Andover, New Hampshire
I codirect the Massachusetts Legal Aid Websites Project, and run MassLegalHelp.org (MLH), based at Massachusetts Law Reform Institute (MLRI). The Websites Project uses technology to increase access to justice for low-income and vulnerable Massachusetts residents. MLH is Massachusetts legal aid programs' collaborative effort to provide relevant, easy-to-read, civil legal information and tools for Massachusetts residents. Prior to joining MLRI, I was Community Content Developer at Artimedia and InTouch Kirklees, a national prototype digital television project that integrates community and official information for low income and vulnerable people, in the United Kingdom. I double majored in Greek and Latin as an undergrad which developed my dedication to readability and the doors readable and plain language can open. I am a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer and I have been advocating for survivors of domestic violence since 1981.
Talk to me about language and justice, developing interactive online tools that help people write the letters and file the forms they need to begin to take control of their lives, rock climbing, rural life, mountain biking in Colorado -my son, helicopter piloting in Alaska - my daughter or renovating an old Calvinist Methodist chapel in Anglesey - my husband.
