Conference spreads word on court technology

The National Center for State Courts' sixth annual National Court Technology Conference (CTC6) began Tuesday in Los Angeles with the goal of providing the more than 3,000 attendees with latest technological innovations and solutions to best prepare the nation's courts for the 21st century.

The NCSC, a Williamsburg, Va.-based nonprofit organization that provides management, leadership and administrative services to state courts, conducted a poll that found nearly 80 percent of Americans believe that court cases are not resolved in a timely manner, and two-thirds of respondents said court cases are too expensive.

CTC6 will provide the forum for courts to "take their current technology to the next level," said NCSC president Roger Warren. He said technology will serve to speed the court process and reduce costs, and he called the conference "a step toward raising public confidence in the judicial system."

The conference offers numerous educational sessions, on topics including electronic filing and public access, Internet/intranet applications, document technology and integrated justice systems.

Attendees also can access the CTC6 lab to test computer applications discussed in the educational sessions, and the lab will announce its choices for the world's Top 10 Court World Wide Web sites.
