The Court of the Future Network
The Court of the Future Network is a group of architects, engineers, psychologists, judicial officers, lawyers, criminologists and others in Australia and New Zealand who work closely with court communities to improve the quality of justice environments.
Our interests include both the physical and psychological setting of courts and tribunals, and also the processes and rituals of justice. We identify emerging issues, carry out research to discover and test how new approaches might work in the real world of the court, and disseminate information through conferences and workshops.
Current and previous research by the Court of the Future Network, in consultation with court and tribunal communities, includes projects on:
- juror satisfaction
- Mental Health Tribunals
- juries and interactive visual evidence
- court safety and security
- improving video-mediated communications for justice participants.
Professor David Tait and Diane Jones co-ordinate the Court of the Future Network. David also leads the Justice Research Group which is based at the University of Western Sydney on the Bankstown Campus and Diane is a Director of PTW Architects.
