Week of November 7, 2005

Center for Access to Justice & Technology

Chicago-Kent College of Law established the Center for Access to Justice & Technology (CAJT) to make justice more accessible to the public by promoting the use of the Internet in the teaching, practice, and public access to the law.

ABA eLawyering Presentation: Chicago-Kent will host an eLawyering presentation Wednesday, 4/19 from 3:00 - 4:00 PM in Room 370. Sponsored by the ABA eLawyering Task Force, the Center for Access to Justice & Technology and the Computer Law Association, this presentation will focus on ways in which pioneer practitioners are using the web to communicate and collaborate with clients and other lawyers, produce documents, settle disputes, interact with courts, and manage legal knowledge. This program is free and open to all Chicago-area law students. Refreshments will be served.

Additional background on eLawyering can be access through this article.
