An app that can quickly and easily provide those working in a community legal centre with legal information about the payment of parking and other fines was named best app at a student showcase held by UNSW Law.

The students were among the first cohort in the Faculty’s “Designing Technology Solutions for Access to Justice” course.

The winning team of Jelena Ardalic, Clare Cullen, Jessica Liang and Leon Louie created an app to help the University’s Kingsford Legal Centre support its clients.

“We were overwhelmed by the sheer number of fines a person could possibly receive and decided to build an application that dealt with two aspects common to all fines: payment options and expiry dates,” Cullen said.

“We ended up building ‘Fined Out: How to Deal with a Fine’, which advises the user on their payment options, a fine’s urgency, demerit point status and options for expired fines.”
