Opening Keynote: The Technology Revolution, Lawyers, and Courts: Why So Slow? And How Can We Accelerate Change?
Technology has transformed and improved service delivery in many industries. But lawyers have been slow to initiate and adopt new technologies and to change their traditional service-delivery patterns, to the detriment of clients, and many courts have not embraced technologies that could make their processes more accessible to litigants, particularly those who cannot afford a lawyer. Why? where are the levers of power and change, and how can they be harnessed to make the legal system more user-friendly?
