ABOUT THE BOOK:
In Online Courts and the Future of Justice, Professor Richard Susskind, the world's most cited author on the future of legal services, shows how litigation will be transformed by technology and proposes a solution to the global access to justice problem.
Online courts provide online judging - the determination of cases by human judges but not in physical courtrooms. Online courts also provide tools to help users understand relevant law and to formulate arguments and assemble evidence. They offer non-judicial settlements such as mediation, not as an alternative to the public court system but as part of it. In years to come, court determinations may even be made by AI-based systems.
Online Courts and the Future of Justice is a case study in the digital transformation of a vital public service.
