ABOUT US

The Washington State Access to Justice (ATJ) Board was established by order of the Washington Supreme Court in 1994. Our members include lawyers, judges, court administrators, legal service providers, technology experts and educators. The goal of the ATJ Board is to promote equal access to justice, and we have long recognized the importance of technology in removing barriers to such access. Our Technology Committee is responsible for the ATJ Technology Principles, which inform Washington’s policies affecting the technology used for access to or administration of justice.

ATJWeb is the Technology Committee’s outreach effort; its goal is to spread public awareness and institutional use of the ATJ Technology Principles. These Principles were adopted by a 2004 Supreme Court Order to guide Washington’s use of technology in the justice system.

This site and the implementation guides were made possible by a grant from the Office of the Attorney General of Washington.
