Canadian Forum on Court Technology

The Canadian Centre for Court Technology, a high-powered national think tank comprised of judges and leading justice sector participants, will be convening an impressive conference on court technology in Ottawa later this month.

As noted at the CCCT website, the conference agenda provides a nice window as to where our nation's justice system is heading, technologically speaking:

The CCCT-CCTJ is delighted to announce a unique national event: the Canadian Forum on Court Technology (CFCT-FCTJ). It will take place in Ottawa on September 22 and 23, 2010. All details are available on the CFCT-FCTJ website.

The Forum will feature the following keynote speakers:
