This spring, Silicon Valley powerhouse law firm Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati is teaming up with students at Brigham Young University J. Reuben Clark Law School to help design a program that will simplify the asylum application process.

It marks the first time that BYU’s three-year-old LawX legal design lab is partnering with a law firm to create a new tool to address the access-to-justice problem. In addition to Wilson Sonsini, LawX is also working with SixFifty—the law firm’s software subsidiary—to support the technical side of the asylum project.
