AzCourtHelp.org has been recognized by the National Association for Court Managers (NACM) and the International Association for Court Administration (IACA) for its services and access to the public.
AzCourtHelp.org received the Top 10 Court Technology Solution Award, according to a press release. AzCourtHelp.org was selected over entries from other states, as well as Dubai and Rwanda.
The awards are designed to recognize courts that use technology to improve services and public access.
“I want to congratulate the courts for this great achievement and receiving this worldwide recognition,” said award Chairwoman Liz Archuleta in the release. “It is the court system’s innovative ideas and dedication to the community which continually make our system more efficient and more accessible for everyone.”
AzCourtHelp.org was developed as a pilot program and offers free assistance to those who have legal questions regarding divorce and custody, landlord and tenant issues, civil disputes or criminal charges. The website allows users to use a legal self-help program which can save time and money and help them to understand their legal rights and obligations.
The site also offers free live webinars on various legal topics, which can also be attended in person at the Coconino Law Library.
