Welcome and Opening Plenary: Improving Access to Justice through Technology - A Global Perspective

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

Access to Justice is a local issue on a global scale. The challenges low-income people in the US face in finding help for their legal problems are faced by people around the world. This panel will look at how other countries are using technology to improve access and at how those solutions and ours can be shared to the benefit of all. It will explore efforts underway to provide coordination and cooperation. Also, it will look at how understanding legal procedures from other countries can be helpful in understanding the mindsets of those from other cultures seeking our help.
