Professor Richard Susskind Discusses Online Courts
Professor Richard Susskind shares insights on how the pandemic will impact the future of online legal and court services.
Until now, the legal profession has largely viewed technology as a thing that should be grafted onto the very traditional practice of law, but the onset of the pandemic has forced this opinion to change rapidly. Lawyers and judges who once eschewed the idea of online legal practice–and particularly online courts–are now working to find ways to innovate legal and court services to continue providing access to justice. In this edition of the Digital Edge, hosts Sharon Nelson and Jim Calloway welcome Professor Richard Susskind to survey the new landscape of online courts and discuss changing views toward technology across the profession.
Professor Richard Susskind OBE is an author, speaker, and independent adviser to major professional firms and to national governments.
