Categories: | Author: Administrator Account | Posted: 3/25/2014 | Views: 454

The Indiana General Assembly, in 2013, created the Judicial Technology Oversight Committee (JTOC) to: (1) conduct a continuous study of information technology applications for Indiana's judicial system; (2) develop a long-range strategy for technology and automation in Indiana's judicial system; and (3) make recommendations to the Supreme Court concerning the implementation of policies, standards and rules that promote the effective use of technology and automation in Indiana courts.

To assist JTOC in performing its functions, the Indiana State Bar Association surveyed its members in February 2014 to determine what experiences and desires they have had of technology in the court system.

Here are the results:

Question 1: With how many attorneys do you practice?

Question 2: How many years have you been practicing?

Question 3: What is your primary area of practice?

Question 4: Do you practice in the federal court system?

Question 6: Please provide a rough estimate of the total number of documents (everything: pleadings, notices, correspondence, authorities, etc.) filed in the last 12 months by you, personally (i.e., not the whole firm), with all state and local courts, commissions and agencies.
