This autumn sees the release of Richard Susskind’s new book, “Online Courts and The Future of Justice,” from Oxford University Press. The book argues that to address the current access to justice gap, there needs to be transformation of courts through the leveraging of technology. Specifically, Susskind calls for “online courts,” which provide two distinct services: “online judging,” where human judges receive evidence and arguments, and deliver decisions through online platforms; and the “extended court,” where technology helps court users understand their rights and available legal options.

 Legaltech News is publishing excerpts from the book that uniquely highlight the pressing and complex issues facing the legal industry as it leverages technology to make legal services more widely available, efficient, and equitable. In order to spark thought and conversation about technology in the courts and the broader legal industry, Legaltech News reporters have solicited insights and reactions to these excerpts from a variety of legal and tech professionals.  

Excerpt: Chapter 27: The Computer Judge
