“Most renters can’t afford a lawyer, and most are not eligible for legal aid” says Noel Lim, founder of Anika Legal. Anika Legal, a social enterprise, is a free service for renters, supported by law students in internships and funded by universities who want to provide students with practical legal experience. Through innovative use of legal technology to make this partnership model viable, Anika Legal has assisted 750 renters to stay in safe homes. “We're excited to continue developing this technology to give more people access to justice” says Noel. https://www.anikalegal.com
