Collaborating with your Courts on E-filing, Document Assembly and Access for Low Income People

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The field of court management technology is rapidly changing and their systems can often have significant impacts on low income people. Some issues include: How will courts deal with fee waivers when implementing e-filing? What happens when litigants don’t have credit cards for filing fees? Are self-represented litigants going to be required to e-file? Will they be prohibited from e-filing? Will e-filing systems be clear enough for self-represented litigants to use? How do we connect legal aid document assembly programs with e-filing? What is the impact on low-income people of having court records easily accessible on-line? Can we improve language access using video remote interpreting? This session will identify opportunities, challenges and potential solutions. It will discuss how to develop relationships with courts and collaborate to dramatically expand access and services for low-income people.
