The Northwestern University Law and Technology Initiative presents this virtual event:

Courts around the world are embracing innovation and adopting technology in the pursuit of expanding access to legal services and justice. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated these trends. Many jurisdictions are developing online courts and online dispute resolution processes. Some use artificial intelligence to provide legal information, complete administrative tasks, or make decisions in small-claims disputes. Our panel of experts will share examples of the use of technology in courts around the world, including in Canada, China, Europe, and Latin America.
