UK-based legaltech startup, a crowdfunding platform called CrowdJustice, has raised $2 million in seed funding. The investment round was led by Venrock and First Round Capital, with participation from Bessemerand Kindred Capital.

The Crowdjustice platform seeks to democratize access to the legal system, to fund legal action for ordinary people and groups. The platform wants to "make the law available to everyone". Individuals can look for particular legal cases to support financially, or appeal for funding with their own case.

CrowdJustice has so far featured hundreds of cases, raising over $3 million in legal costs, including Supreme Court cases and a “people’s challenge” to Brexit in the UK.

The round will be used to expand CrowdJustice’s model from the UK .
