Professor Jane Bailey is a co-editor, alongside Karim Benyehklef, Jacquelyn Burkell and Fabien Gelinas, of a new book entitled eAccess to Justice, published by uOttawa Press. It is part of a new series on law and technology and is available for free download.
The book explores claims that technology will improve justice system efficiency and offers a model for evaluating e-justice systems that incorporates a broader range of justice system values. It examines the specific challenges associated with implementing technologies in the justice system, adopting the standpoints of sociology, political theory and legal theory to explore the complex web of values, norms, and practices that support our systems of justice, the reasons for their well-established resistance to change, and the avenues and prospects of eAccess.
As part of the University’s Open Access initiative, the book can be downloaded for free via the uOttawa Press website.
