About

We as a society, have become so dependent on the devices that are supposed to simplify our lives, but just like anything else, this simplification comes at a significant cost. When we download an app, sign up to use a social media platform, or store sensitive information on popular websites like Amazon we are required to agree to the website's Terms of Service Agreement and Privacy Policy. It is common practice to click agree without ever reading through these legally binding agreements. Even those who attempt to read the agreements end up giving up after the second paragraph because the legalese littered throughout the agreement is an assault on the eyes, as well as the mind. It is my goal to create a plain langue database that will decipher the legal word salad, and make it easy for everyone to understand what they are giving up when they use the "free" products and services. 

Risks and challenges

I will be collaborating with 4 other law students who are also working in contract law as paralegals. Our combined knowledge and experience will make this process easier.
