Technology & Access to Justice


As a legal services organization with an interest in new and emerging technologies and a strong commitment to public service, the issue of litigants’ access to justice is one of particular interest to the Cyberlaw Clinic.  In the current economy, more people are seeking legal redress through the courts while fewer than ever are represented by lawyers; at the same time, court budges have been slashed, and there are fewer personnel to help the public.  The Clinic has dedicated considerable time and resources in recent years to working to ensure litigants — and, in particular, low-income and pro se litigants — understand and can make use of the justice system and that courts do what they can to facilitate such access using technology.
