Facing growing numbers of civil and family law litigants representing themselves, courts are expanding services offered through “self-help” centers.
Videoconference technology helps deliver self-help services remotely and increases a court's outreach.
Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye has selected Administrative Presiding Justice Judith D. McConnell for the Chief Justice's Award for Exemplary Service and Leadership for her outstanding work in civics.
Court self-help centers aim to help Californians without legal representation navigate the court system.
“This year’s budget represents an unprecedented investment in our judicial branch,” said Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye.
Court of Appeal in Fresno spearheads projects to modernize and expand access to justice for Californians appealing their cases.
