Electronic courts or e-courts have a significant role to play in effective and transparent judicial system. E-courts in India are still evolving and till April 2016 we are still looking forward to establish India’s first e-court.
Recently the e-court project of India 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 Organisation (P4LO) has initiated few techno legal projects in the fields of e-courts and ODR. For instance, the first ever techno legal Online Legal Case Management System (OLCMS) of India 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 launch of a Techno Legal Centre of Excellence for Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) in India (TLCEODRI), a discussion forum titled Online Dispute Resolution Mechanism (ODRM), an ODR Trainings And Skills Development In India By TLCEODRI, Online Disputes Resolution & Cyber Arbitration platform, etc.
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.
