Nathan L. Hecht of the Texas Supreme Court, Bridget M. McCormack of the Michigan Supreme Court, Tani-Cantil Sakauye of the California Supreme Court, and Kristina Pickering of the Nevada Supreme Court recently participated in a virtual panel discussion hosted by the Legal Service Corporation on how the pandemic has affected access to justice.
In a piece from Law.com covering the event, the justices detailed the ways in which the COVID-19 pandemic has changed their court operations and procedures. They focused on the ways recent changes have improved access to justice, citing expanded technology, accessibility, and communications efforts.
The justices noted that the challenges presented by the pandemic forced the courts to adapt and make more changes in the past 10 months than they had seen in the previous 100 years.
