Future-Focused Court Services

Illinois Supreme Court Justice Mary Jane Theis opened The Future Is Now with a call for the legal profession to reflect on the value that lawyers and the judicial system provide the public. Although it’s important for the profession to embrace technology and creative solutions to improve the delivery of legal and judicial services, it must also remain true to its backbone: the rule of law and the justice system.

The true value of the pillars of the legal profession cannot be replicated by technology, Justice Theis emphasized. These qualities include integrity, ethics, transparency and the enforcement of rights, among others.
