Justice Passport Program Manager

Civil Justice, Inc., seeks a professional to serve as Program Manager for the Maryland Justice Passport (“the Justice Passport) project.  Launched in 2020, the Justice Passport is a trauma-informed technology helping Marylanders find effective legal and social services assistance. This is an exciting opportunity for a technology-minded individual to improve access to justice for all Marylanders.

About the Passport: Marylanders without lawyers often visit multiple organizations to address their legal problem. When tasked with visiting different organizations, they may have difficulty keeping track of where they’ve been, as well as keeping track of important paperwork. In addition, these Marylanders may forget their next steps, and may be retraumatized by re-telling their story to other service providers. The Maryland Justice Passport is a trauma-informed technology that empowers Marylanders and improves their ability to navigate the Maryland legal services delivery system.
