Electronic courts or e-courts can play an important role in effective and transparent judicial system. World over countries are trying to establish e-courts and alternative dispute resolution mechanisms that can help them in reduction of burden from traditional courts.
However, this is not an easy task and it requires tremendous domain specific techno legal expertise. For instance, e-courts in India are still evolving and till December 2014 we are still looking forward to establish India’s first e-court. The e-courts project of India also faced a major setback when the e-committee refused to use audio and video recordings in lower courts.
Similarly, the national litigation policy of India also needs a redraft and rejuvenation keeping in mind the changed circumstances and policies. For instance, the national litigation policy and the proposed amendments in the Indian arbitration law must also include concepts like e-courts and online dispute resolution (ODR).
Perry4Law and Perry4Law’s Techno Legal Base (PTLB) have initiated few techno legal projects in the fields of e-courts and ODR. For instance, an Online Legal Case Management System (OLCMS) of Perry4Law Organisation (P4LO) has been started as a prototype for our main project titled E Courts 4 Justice (EC4J). Updates in this regard would be available from time to time at our Twitter account named EC4J.
Similarly, in the field of ODR we have started few initiatives. These include a discussion forum titled Online Dispute Resolution Mechanism (ODRM) of Perry4Law Organisation (P4LO) and Online Case Management System (OCMS) of Perry4Law Organisation (P4LO).
The E Courts 4 Justice (EC4J) project by Perry4Law Organisation (P4LO) would provide techno legal services to national and international stakeholders. These techno legal services would include consultancy, training, skills development, litigation support, e-filing, e-discovery and many more such services.
We hope various stakeholders would find these projects of P4LO useful and we look forward to work with various government, non government, national and international stakeholders in this regard.
