COVID-19 has forced court systems across the country to turn to remote hearings and trials. High-speed internet, multiple monitors and ring lights help make the transition, but many people do not have the technology for access to this remote justice. In this session we will look at the technological divide, additional challenges for those with a language divide and best practices to try and bridge the gap for all seeking to be heard in court.
