Event description
HJS is delighted to invite you to the event with Professor Susskind

About this Event

It is common for policymakers and technologists to talk about the digital transformation of public service. In practice, however, most technology projects in government involve ‘automation’ (streamlining and systematizing current ways of working) rather than ‘transformation’ (using technology to deliver services in ways that were not possible in the past). In this talk, Richard Susskind will speak about the transformation of one vital public service – the courts. In most advanced legal systems, the resolution of civil disputes takes too long, costs too much, and the process is unintelligible to ordinary mortals. The courts of some jurisdictions are labouring under staggering backlogs - 100 million cases in Brazil, 30 million in India. Susskind will show how we can use the remarkable reach of the internet to help people understand and enforce their legal rights. Is court a service or a place? According to Susskind, it is a service and one that can and should be improved unrecognisably through the use of technology.

SPEAKER:

Professor Richard Susskind OBE

Technology Adviser to the Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales,

President of the Society for Computers and Law,

Chair of the Advisory Board of the Oxford Internet Institute

 and the author of 'Online Courts and the Future of Justice'
