Thursday, September 20, 2018 @ 2:25 PM | By John Chunn

Carleton University is looking for volunteers for a survey into how online technology applications are being used, and can be better used, in the family courts.

This project looks into how legal tech solutions are being used, and can be better used, to address backlogs, delays, high levels of conflict and support the best interests of children when co-parents have disputes. The study aims to learn about how tech is being used, how it can be better used and what issues most concern co-parents. You will be asked to complete a simple, online survey.

This study is funded by the Law Foundation of Ontario’s Access to Justice Fund and is being undertaken by Rebecca Bromwich, director of the Graduate Diploma in Conflict Resolution Program at Carleton.

To be eligible to participate, you must simply be English-speaking, comfortable using computers to access the Internet and be at least 18 years of age.

The study will take place entirely online.

If you have questions, please contact Bromwich at:
