Court Affiliates Conference

June 1-2, 2020

CLCT’s annual Court Affiliates Conference provides courts and their representatives with an opportunity to connect with colleagues and learn from the insightful, cutting-edge work performed by their peers. Each Conference centers around a special theme designed to foster discussion in some of today’s most pressing legal and technological issues.

For our 2020 Conference, that theme is the use of video communications and evidence in the courtroom.

Video as a medium plays an important and ever-expanding role in our courts. Legal and societal practices are changing, pro se representation is on the rise, and demands on court time and resources are ever-growing. The landscape is pushing courts to look to technology-based solutions and improvements. Video conferencing permits parties, witnesses, interpreters, court reporters, counsel, and even judges to participate remotely. These increasingly software-based video-conferencing capabilities, while beneficial, pose unique challenges that should be addressed so that we might best advance their effective and lawful use. At the same time, today’s trial evidence often includes recorded video that poses major presentation and court record challenges. Additionally, special areas of concern that warrant in-depth examination and discussion – such as “deep fakes” (video content manipulation) and automation of foreign language interpretation – arise from the growing use of artificial intelligence.

Ideas shared throughout the Conference will ultimately guide changes that will be made to the Court Affiliates’ Protocols for the Use of Courtroom Technology and inform other courts’ practices. The Conference will also include a tour of the Ninth Judicial Circuit Court of Florida’s Orlando courthouse – one of the world’s most technologically advanced – to provide attendees with additional insight into how their technological needs might be best addressed. Accordingly, we invite you to join us for the 2020 Court Affiliates Conference and to explore a magical kingdom of courtroom video technology.
