Videoconferencing's impact on law.
Videoconferencing has allowed testimony to be used for individuals who are not able to attend the physical legal settings. In a military investigation in North Carolina, Afghan witnesses have testified using videoconferencing. In Hall County, Georgia, LifeSize video conferencing systems are used for initial court appearances. The systems link the jail and the court room, reducing the expenses and major security risks of transporting prisoners to the courtroom.
