Court Affiliates Program


The Court Affiliates Program, sponsored by the Center for Legal & Court Technology (CLCT) and the National Center for State Courts, is a collection of courts with a shared mission: to employ useful, efficient, and economical legal technology to enhance the administration of justice. Using the CLCT-managed McGlothlin Courtroom – the world’s most technologically advanced educational courtroom — as its hub, the Affiliates work to minimize unnecessary duplication of effort, conserve financial and personnel resources, and promote compliance with the legal and pragmatic needs of the courts and those they serve. Through their mutual cooperative efforts, the Court Affiliates act to determine best practices and disseminate them among the member courts, and as appropriate, other legal organizations.

In today’s world, there is a need for more effective means of exchanging critical technical, legal, and practical information.  Our primary goal is to help courts avoid reinventing the wheel. The Court Affiliates program is designed to serve as an interactive information exchange system.

The Court Affiliates program is open to all courts that have or plan to have technology-augmented courtrooms. Members receive discounts on training and conferences, such as CLCT’s court technologist A/V training courses and construction conference.
