Paul Embley is the CIO and Technology Division Director at the National Center for State Courts. He began his career in Silicon Valley working for the "who's who" of high tech (along with several of the "who's no longer"). After 25 years in the for-profit sector, Paul shifted to public sector work on integrated justice. In both public and private-sector roles, he has gleaned broad product lifecycle expertise from diverse and challenging projects in more than 45 US states and territories, Australia, many EU nations, and several emerging democracies including Haiti, Jamaica, and Nigeria. He has lead justice-related IT assessments and technology initiatives ranging from child welfare and terrorist watchlist to online dispute resolution. He continues to follow potential disrupters such as blockchain and machine learning/data science looking for ways those disrupters might be used advantageously in courts and with justice partners. Paul has lived and worked in Europe as well as the US. He is currently involved in international, national, and localized technology initiatives for criminal and civil justice.
