2019 CLCT Week

May 19 – 24, 2019

CLCT is hosting a week-long series of events to educate courtroom professionals on the future of technology for the administration of justice. Join us for one, two, or all three of these important sessions. 

Law, AI, & New Technologies: What You Need to Know

This one-day workshop, designed for judges and practitioners, precedes the Court Affiliates Conference and kicks off our CLCT Week. It will provide a useful guide to understanding the rapidly emerging legal issues posed by artificial intelligence (AI) and other components of the AI Ecosystem. From the Internet of Things, to smart contracts, to Blockchain, these technologies will effect profound changes in the types of issues courts face. 

 All Court Affiliates are welcome!

The 2019 Court Affiliates Conference

Technology continues to change our lives, and with each passing day it introduces new legal and practical questions courts must answer. How will such technology affect courthouses over the next decade? How should courts use this technology to administer justice as fairly, efficiently, and inexpensively as possible?  To what extent should courts engage in online dispute resolution?  Can this technology be used to better accommodate self-represented litigants?

Please join us for the 2019 Court Affiliates Conference, where we will discuss these critical questions and seek to better define our needs, issues, and priorities for the next ten years. Highlights of the conference include:

  • An opening keynote address from Gregory Akers, the Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of Advanced Security Research & Government (retired)
  • Presentations on court and legal technology in the United Kingdom and South Korea
  • Court Affiliate best practice and protocol presentations
  • Breakout sessions to discuss questions and relevant issues
  • A presentation and discussion on how the Court Affiliates program can help courts and court employees in the next ten years
