Vivek shares the ideas and experiences that led him to found Namati and the plans for moving the organization forward. This includes ideas for starting a program in the USA. “The U.S. in some ways has a surplus of lawyers – as do countries like Nigeria and Brazil – but still, I believe there is a huge scope for this approach in the United States,” states Vivek. “And the reason is, even though we have tons of lawyers, we have an extraordinary crisis in terms of access to justice.”
