‘Access to Justice in a digital era’ is a podcast in which academics talk about their research and how law works in practice. The guests are academics who contributed to the special issue “Access to Justice in a digital era” of the Journal of Empirical Research on Law in Action (Recht der Werkelijkheid).
Here you can listen to a conversation with Carolyn McKay.
In Australia, psychiatric and psychological clinical assessments have seen an increased digitalisation process. Researcher Carolyn McKay examines how digitalisation processes in the criminal justice system are altering modes of conducting clinical assessments of a vulnerable population: people-in-prison. Despite the growing ubiquity of remote clinical assessments of people-in-prison, McKay also finds some reservations regarding the remote mode.
The episode is available on all podcast platforms.
