The pandemic brought Ontario Courts to a screeching halt – accepting nothing but emergency cases. Russell Alexander invites lawyers to weigh the pros and cons of an electronic, paperless justice system. Richard Harris and Brian Walters share their experiences in the United States where paperless files are not only the norm, they’re mandatory. Lynn Kirwin expresses her frustration with the ‘archaic system’ currently in place.
