The immediate and improvised nature of the COVID shutdown in the spring of 2020 did not only bring to light systemic justice problems, but created new ones too. One such is the accelerated digitization of the judicial system. This session of the New Spaces of Justice workshop addresses real-time challenges faced by the courts and its users and rethink analog and virtual court infrastructures, buildings, symbols and artifacts through a human-centered lens.
