Dear Colleague:

On Thursday and Friday, March 22nd and 23rd, 2007, with the assistance of the 
Administrative Office of the United States Courts, the Center for Legal and 
Court Technology (formerly the Courtroom 21 Project) will host the Fifth 
Conference on Privacy and Public Access to Court Records in Williamsburg, 
Virginia.  It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the Conference, 
which will bring together policy makers from the state and federal courts, 
judges, law professors, access and privacy advocates, and others involved in 
efforts to develop policies on public access to court records.  We encourage 
you to forward this invitation on to others who have interest in this area. All 
are welcome to participate.
This will be a working conference designed to promote exchange of information 
and wide-ranging discussion of the issues among the participants.  The 
Conference will feature two full days of presentations and discussions on 
topics including:
Recent developments in state court public access and privacy policies and rules
Emerging issues and challenges related to implementation of court record access 
Court records in the broader context of debate over access to public records
The interplay between electronic access to court records and commercial 
databases of personal information
The effect of enhanced access to courtroom proceedings on the privacy/access 
Recent developments in public access to family court records
The Conference will take place in William & Mary Law School's McGlothlin 
Courtroom.  The home of the Center for Legal and Court Technology, the 
McGlothlin Courtroom is the world's most technologically advanced courtroom and 
a proper symbolic venue for discussing these issues. An optional presentation 
of the Courtroom and its implications will be part of the Conference. The 
Conference has been planned in cooperation with the National Center and with 
the support of the Administrative Office of the United States Courts.  Attached 
is a tentative agenda.  Please let us know if you have trouble opening the 
attachment and we would be happy to send it in another format.

Due to the generous support of our sponsors, including Lexis-Nexis, the 
conference registration fee is $195.  An optional dinner in the Great Hall in

Williamsburg is served by three airports.  Both Norfolk and Richmond have 
large, full service airports and each is about 50 minutes from Williamsburg 
(though traffic between Norfolk and Williamsburg is often congested).  The 
Newport News-Williamsburg International Airport is about twenty-five minutes 
from Williamsburg and is served by Air Tran, Delta and USAir commuter flights.  
Shuttle service is available from the first two airports but not from Newport 

We very much hope you will join us to discuss these important issues.
