We help ordinary people to cope with, understand, and challenge automated scoring systems.

Credit scoring, search engine rankings, performance ratings, and pre-trial risk assessments: automated scoring systems play an increasingly important role in ordering our lives. Problems arise when people are misrepresented and – in the worst case – stigmatized by these opaque and hard-to-challenge judgments.

The Digital Due Process Clinic provides high-quality, pro bono services to those affected by these systems. Based at Cornell University, the clinic brings together a multidisciplinary team of students who work on real-world problems under the supervision of experienced faculty.
