Courthouse Kiosk to Enhance Legal Access in Woodruff County Circuit Court

The Arkansas Access to Justice Foundation is pleased to announce the donation of a new kiosk to the Woodruff County Circuit Court. This installation is part of our ongoing efforts to make navigating the court system more accessible for our community. The kiosk allows Arkansans to access court records, print documents, locate necessary legal forms and fact sheets, and apply for legal aid. Additionally, video explainers and FAQs are available to simplify complex legal concepts. The public can access these resources at the Woodruff County Circuit Clerk’s office in Augusta or by visiting ARCourtKiosk.org. “We are thankful for this partnership with the Woodruff County Circuit Clerk” remarked Abby Brenneman, Executive Director of the Arkansas Access to Justice Foundation. “We look forward to partnering with many more court officials to improve the public’s access to their courts.”

The Woodruff County Circuit Court kiosk is a part of a statewide program called AR Courthouse Kiosks. The program is a partnership between the Arkansas Access to Justice Foundation, the Court Improvement Program, and the Administrative Office of the Courts. As part of this program, 112 kiosks will be installed in the coming months, with kiosks made available to every circuit court, select district courts, and select county libraries. The program’s goal is to have at least one kiosk available in every county. “The Administrative Office of the Courts works to ensure that Arkansas courts deliver on the promise of justice for all. We are honored to continue that effort by improving the accessibility of the courts for all Arkansans,” said Marty Sullivan, AOC Director.

Installing these kiosks has long been a strategic goal of the Court Improvement Program in Arkansas. “The Court Improvement Program is proud to be a part of this important project that is giving Arkansas families the ability to easily access court information and legal resources,” said Brooke Steen, AOC Juvenile Justice Division Director.

Funding for this project was provided by the Administrative Office of the Courts through a federal grant. The Arkansas Access to Justice Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to funding legal aid for low-income Arkansans and improvements to the administration of justice.
