On 12-13 December 2012, ICOSH 2012 was organised by the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Bangi, Selangor, MALAYSIA. It was a two-days event leading to Procedia proceedings and ISI WOK indexes. On the second day of the conference, I presented my paper entitled: Challenges of ICT Adoption by the High Courts of Malaysia. Essentially, I discussed that by adopting ICT, there are numerous challenges impacting the full implementation of the ICT systems and applications. The findings were derived from both secondary data (journal articles) as well as primary data (interviews conducted with judges, officers of the court, system developers, lawyers and litigants.

The research found that there are 3 major challenges facing the full implementation of ICT adoption by the High Courts of Malaysia: (1) changing the mindset of the users, (2) cost and budgeting aspects, and (3) various administrative changes. (more…)

New Order 63A on E-Filing – Rules of Court 2012 September 11, 2012

The recently enforced Rules of Court 2012 finally introduces a provision on e-filing by virtue of Order 63A of the Rules. To the least, this new Order 63A which came into force on 1 August 2012 addresses the concerns by many lawyers on the absence of legal provisions on ICT at the courts.

Nonetheless, e-filing remains an option for filing of court documents, as it is still not compulsory. Order 63A of the Rules gives power to the Registrar to establish and make provision for e-filing services.

In addition, there are no specific provisions to cater for the other ICT systems at the courts e.g. case management system, queue management system, court recording and transcription, audio and video conference system, and community and advocates portal. Probably the other systems will be managed internally by practice directions and best practices, instead of prescribing specifically in the Rules.

I trust everybody is familiar with Dropbox, SugarSync or any other cloud services. Talk about your email services like Hotmail, GMail, Yahoo or your corporate emails. What about the data servers which store your information on the cloud (whether transmitted through or stored on the cloud)? How sure are you that your data is secured? (more…)

I presented a paper explaining about my PhD research progress at the 3rd National Postgraduate Colloquium held at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Bangi, Selangor, Malaysia on 8th of October 2011. Since I just completed the fieldwork of my research at that time, I decided to present the data collection process in my paper entitled: “Courtroom Technology in Malaysia: the Data Collection Stage”. Among the feedback given by the assessors are:

- Well explanation on the stages of data collection
– To properly triangulate between the primary data generated and secondary data obtained
– To discusss more on the theories involved in my research: the innovation society and risk society

Overall, I’m satisfied with the feedback I got from the assessors, and I will definitely take into consideration the suggestions given.

I have not been able to update this blog as frequently as I planned, for I have been occupied for the last couple of months completing my interviews and court visits for the purpose of my PhD research. Thankfully, the process is now coming to an end, and now nearing the finalisation of the transcription process. What follows next would be the primary data analysis, which I plan to adopt the use of ATLAS.ti qualitative data analysis software version 6.2.

Being at this stage, I am glad to share this link to Atlas Malaysia blog – Atlas.ti trainings in Malaysia which is also maintained by me and another research partner.

The Malaysian courts would take another leap into the technological phase, with the proposed launching of the audio conference system at the courts in Kuala Lumpur. Audio conference is where the parties relevant to the case would be able to communicate with each other via fixed line or mobile phone without being physically present at one place. This is indeed an initiative by the Malaysian judiciary to further enhance the delivery of the civil justice system in Malaysia … Click here to read more
