This lecture explores the possibilities of change in justice administration offered by the Internet: a world of virtual courts and virtual lawyers, online dispute resolution and document drafting, and legal e-learning and communities of legal experience.

Until recently, justice has been administered in physical courtrooms, and legal advice has been dispensed by solicitors and barristers. The Internet offers the possibility of change – to a world of virtual courts and virtual lawyers, of online dispute resolution and online document drafting, of legal e-learning and communities of legal experience.

This lecture will explore these and other opportunities, arguing that justice itself requires a shift from 19th century practices to Internet-enabled administration of justice.
