Going digital to deliver justice

The COVID-19 pandemic has acted as an accelerant to switch to digital means to deliver justice.

From e-filings to virtual hearings, the justice systems of countries across the world are using technology to define their legal and justice landscape, infusing their existing procedures and practices with technology and setting the ground to welcome the fourth industrial revolution in the justice sector.

Adjusting and adapting to the new normal

As the justice systems are adjusting and adapting to the new normal, a number of questions, concerns and issues arise in the context of digitisation of courts generally and the efficacy of virtual hearings specifically.

This webinar brings together a diverse group of legal experts to discuss their experiences and views on the use of technology and online platforms to deliver justice and the impact on advocacy, including the feasibility of an end to end virtual justice system for particular disputes.
