The World's 10 Best Court Web Sites

For the 11th year running, Justice Served announced its annual awards for the Top 10 Court Websites in the world. Justice Served is a consulting firm that provides services and training to courts in management and technology. It looked at thousands of court Web sites and evaluated them based on criteria that included their functionality, ease of use and appearance.

In evaluating functionality, Justice Served gives higher grades to sites that allow users to perform court business online, without having to appear in person at the courthouse. It gives "extra credit" to sites that are geared toward the public, as opposed to attorneys or other regular users of court services.

Based on these criteria, this year's best court sites are:

The Justice Served blog adds an interesting footnote to this year's awards. When the firm first started ranking court sites in 1999, it found 300 of them. By last year, the number of court sites grew to some 4,000. This year, however, Justice Served could find only 3,000, a significant drop from just a year earlier. Its explanation: "This leads us to the conclusion that court websites went through substantial consolidation last year."
