Martin Gruen is the Deputy Director of CLCT, housed in the McGlothlin Courtroom. It is the world’s most technologically advanced educational courtroom, and is a joint experimental project of the William and Mary Law School and the National Center for State Courts. Since the project’s conception, Martin has directed, installed and designed the technology systems within the courtroom.
He brings thirty years experience providing court technology systems to the legal community. Initially concentrating in the areas of sound reinforcement and audio recording, Martin has now emerged as a national expert in court related high technology legal uses. As founder and president of Applied Legal Technologies, Martin designed many of the nation’s state-of-the-art court technology installations and has served as a consultant to several major legal technology manufacturers.
Having helped give birth to CLCT, Martin has been in charge of the courtroom’s ongoing technological growth and development. According to Professor Fred Lederer, Chancellor Professor of Law and Director of CLCT, “Martin Gruen is a truly extraordinary courtroom designer and technologist. We would not have CLCT and the Courtroom 21 Project without him and his creative work.”
