Empowering Court Users to Be Effective Court Users – Anytime, Anywhere

Via CTC2015

Imagine a world in which self-represented litigants, attorneys, and paralegals had access on their mobile devices to exactly the information and tools they needed, when they needed it.  In the District Court of Pierce County, Washington, court users can easily secure help from court staff using LiveChat, and recipients of citations for civil infractions can schedule their own court dates.  In British Columbia, Courthouse Libraries BC runs Clicklaw, an aggregator website of legal education resources designed for pro se parties, contributed by trusted partners, which provides a centralized, easy-to-navigate portal for self-help. Similarly, over 50 lawyers and other legal professionals contribute to Clicklaw Wikibooks, providing legal information on a multiuse, Wikipedia-style platform.
