Online courts and the future of justice

Professor Richard Susskind OBE

Wednesday 19 August · 3.30pm - 4.30pm · 1 CPD Unit

Since courtrooms closed around the world in mid-March, the legal profession has been forced to test alternative ways of delivering court service.

The uptake of various technologies, especially video technology, has been accelerated. Minds have been opened and changed. Assumptions have been swept aside. Sceptics and critics remain, but there is certainly greater acceptance now than in the past - amongst lawyers, judges, officials and court users - that judicial and court work might be undertaken differently.

Professor Richard Susskind OBE will introduce the various types of 'remote courts' that are emerging, discuss their advantages and limitations, and consider the extent to which justice will be enhanced or diminished by these developments and what the future might hold for judges and litigators.
