ONLINE COURTROOM PROJECT PRESS RELEASE
Released: June 19, 2020
From Voir Dire to Verdict – View a complete live demonstration jury trial, all online!
On June 26th and 27th, the Online Courtroom Project will conduct a two-day demonstration trial entirely online to study the challenges and opportunities of applying technology solutions to today’s justice and court system.
With some courts reopening, a surge in new coronavirus cases, and public reluctance to show up for jury service, come join us as we tackle how the courts would handle an entire jury trial online complete with jury selection, witness testimony, evidence, opening statements and closing arguments, jury instructions and deliberations.
When: Friday June 26th, 2020 from 1pm – 5pm Eastern
Jury Selection and Opening Statements
Saturday June 27th, 2020 from 1pm – 5pm Eastern
Plaintiff and Defense Cases, Closing Arguments, and Deliberations
There are limited registration spots open, so register early! It will be recorded for later viewing.

This demonstration trial is sponsored by The Online Courtroom Project (“OCP”), an advisory group of judges, attorneys, researchers, consultants, and technology specialists with experience in thousands of jury trials. The OCP is currently studying the legal, psychological, behavioral, communication, administrative, and technical elements of online courtroom operations for civil and criminal 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 civil and criminal litigation process, including pre-trial matters, alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”), and bench and jury trials.
