JTDL: Justice-as-a-Platform; machine morality + New jobs

Editor’s Note

Earlier this year, the World Bank asked me to survey access to justice technologies used around the globe and develop a framework to understand what’s happening. Today, the pre-publication version of this research went live.

In this piece, I propose a new way to organize justice technology interventions by thinking of the justice system as a digital platform. Doing so lets us see discrete projects in an interdependent ecosystem of software and processes. While it’s a useful organizing heuristic, I hope this perspective can also help us understand how and why justice technologies succeed or fail. I look forward to your feedback and thoughts. (MIT Computational Law Report)

On a festive administrative note: I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday week in the US. The newsletter will take next week off. We’ll be back on Dec. 6.

Happy Thanksgiving,
Jason

JTDL: Countering China's justice tech; A2J Office returns to DOJ + New jobs

Editor’s Note

Last week, I wrote about how the US can compete against China on digital justice technology for the Brookings Institution. My argument is that our failure to invest in our courts and make big, smart bets on justice technology not only damages our rule of law at home, but also abroad. China is already selling its “techno-authoritarian toolkit” to numerous governments, and there is no clear alternative that promotes democracy and human rights.

I hope justice advocates and technologists will build on this new argument to help expand the coalition that supports these issues and drive home their importance. With Attorney General Merrick Garland reinstating the Office of Access to Justice at the DOJ last week, what I propose is just another reason to cement this issue’s place in the federal government with a level of funding commensurate with the task ahead.

At a time when democracy is being attacked here and around the globe, failing to take bold action is an unforced error with drastic consequences. The US must step up and lead.

Best,
Jason
