ONLINE COURTROOM PROJECT
Ensuring Online Justice is Not Virtual Justice
The Online Courtroom Project (“OCP”) is an advisory task force on the psychological, behavioral, communication, and technical elements of online courtroom operations for criminal and civil matters. The OCP provides research and recommendations to the courts and the legal profession to improve the efficacy of online operations in all aspects of the criminal and civil litigation process, including but not limited to, pre-trial, alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”), and trial.
What Are We Working On
Reinforcing our Commitment
One Step at a Time
Helping The Community
We know we are facing unchartered territory and complicated issues, but there are a lot of available resources and practices that point the way to providing solutions to the current justice bottleneck, and even improving practices in the future. As an interdisciplinary group, we plan to bring thoughtful but expedited wisdom to researching and recommending best practices for online hearings and trials.
