CLCT designs and conducts controlled experiments to study how new technologies affect courtroom justice. Since 2002, CLCT’s studies have explored technologies across the courtroom and legal system, including:
- Testimony: We partnered with the William & Mary Department of Psychology to conduct two experiments comparing remote expert testimony with in-person testimony.
- Evidence: In partnership with the William & Mary Department of Psychology, we tested different ways of presenting evidence from a wiretapped foreign language conversation in an international drug smuggling case.
- Deliberation: We completed an 18-month empirical study exploring the effects that new technologies had on jury deliberations.
