Add To Calendar

Much like an automobile dashboard provides you with all the tools and resources necessary to drive a car, the Wisconsin Judicial Dashboard provides judges with easy access to a wide variety of customized tools and resources used every day — all from a single location. Access to court calendars, cases, and court documents and other frequently used applications helps judges better manage their work days and migrate to paperless case files.  Real-time statistical data helps judges understand how they are doing and identifies cases that may need attention.  Join Wisconsin judges on a test drive of the Wisconsin Judicial Dashboard, where they will showcase many important tools and applications that are essential to work effectively in a paper-on-demand environment.   

This session will be live streamed.
