Ensuring Online Justice is Not Virtual Justice

Home: Welcome

Our Purpose

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

Bringing Change


Online Hearings

Reinforcing our Commitment


One Step at a Time


Best Practices

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.
