Justly makes the justice system more accessible and suitable for your everyday life! An online website designed to help you with all your questions about everyday civil law problems and to bring you a little closer to your rights!
STATUS QUO – What is the problem?
Legal tech companies are becoming increasingly popular in Germany. They take the legal steps off their clients‘ hands and charge a commission in return. The existence of these companies shows us that there are some problems in our current justice system. These prevent individuals from claiming their rights on their own and to the full extent.
1. The first fundamental problem is the lack of knowledge of the law and the lack of awareness of one’s own rights.
2. The second problem is the analogue functioning and structure of our judicial system, which is incomprehensible to most people. (lack of digitalization)
3. The final problem is the lack of a user-friendly interface that bundles information access to the law for the masses.
As a solution we have developed the online platform Justly.
What is JUSTLY?
The website guides you through a path of multiple choice questions that allow Justly to understand your problem. After defining the problem, Justly checks your legal claim and lists your legal options. Now you can decide on your own, which further steps you want to take. For further help, you can also download the sample letter. With it you can get in contact with the conflicting parties out of court, but in a serious way and enforce your rights.
With Justly, we are creating a digital approach to justice that will help citizens become more involved in the legal process and develop a greater understanding of their own rights and our justice system. By increasing understanding and interest, Justly helps to make our justice system more transparent.
Development of JUSTLY
We, the team of the German Business Faculty Hong Kong, together with the Max Planck Institute and Professor Dr. Hanjo Hamann worked on the topic: Knowing what is right – How does the justice system make the leap into the digital age? It was particularly important to us to create a solution idea that was realizable and would help especially our generation in the long term. That’s why we decided to develop an online platform. Along the way, we discussed our idea with many experts who gave us important professional input and supported us in our idea.
