The University of Michigan is spearheading development of what is believed to be first-of-its-kind technology to help people who have been charged with minor offenses interact with courts online, without needing to hire an attorney.
The technology was invented by J.J. Prescott, professor of law, and Ben Gubernick, his former student. Their goal was to increase and equalize citizen access to courts by creating an alternative to physically going to court, a process that can be time-consuming, confusing, and often intimidating.
The software provides a way for litigants with issues ranging from unpaid fines to minor civil infractions, including traffic tickets, to communicate directly with judges and prosecutors to find mutually agreeable ways to resolve their cases.
