Track 4: The Big Picture: Courts in a v.2.0 World

Tuesday, September 22, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Location: 101 D/E

Presenter: Norman Meyer

Track: The Judiciary in a Virtual, Mobile, Social World

Add To Calendar

A fad is defined as "a practice or interest followed for a time with exaggerated zeal; a craze."  Some of our court colleagues view virtual, mobile, and social technologies as fads, destined for history’s dustbin, like pagers and cassette tapes.  But others view these technologies as important tools for achieving their courts’ core missions with increased effectiveness in the areas of efficiency, accessibility, accountability, and transparency.  This opening session will survey a range of virtual, mobile, and social technologies, setting the stage for the track’s exploration of courts’ real-world implementations and what is possible in the future.
