Maryland Judiciary Judicial Council 2021 Annual Report

The Maryland Judiciary prepares for a post-COVID court system

Microsoft Teams, Zoom for Government video remote interpreting services, the continued expansion of Maryland Electronic Courts, and additional digital tools now make up a portion of the Maryland Judiciary’s post-COVID operation. Though innovation within the Maryland Judiciary is not new, the pandemic accelerated the courts’ adoption of technology within the courtroom. While the changes made during 2020 were unprecedented in pace and scale, 2021 provided judicial leadership with the opportunity to reflect on which applications will be filed away as effective short-term responses to a looming emergency and which ones are here to stay in a post-COVID court system.
