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.

Wow! After weeks of attempts to get hold of it, today I managed to download the e-book version of the textbook ‘E-Justice: Using Information Communication Technologies in the Court System’ edited by Agusti Cerrillo and Pere Fabra (Information Science Reference, 2009).

Checkout the editorial review by Amazon.com on the book:

“Technology has had a prevalent impact on nearly all social domains, one being the judicial system. Advancements such as computer-generated demonstrations and electronic filing can enhance presentations and give a clearer, well-organized case.

E-Justice: Using Information Communication Technologies in the Court System presents the most relevant experiences and best practices concerning the use and impact of ICTs in the courtroom. This groundbreaking title draws upon the leading academic and practicing perspectives from around the globe to provide academics and professionals throughout the legal system with the most comprehensive overview of present developments in e-justice.”

Hm… I’m glad I now have this textbook. And now I can’t wait to read the book and start reviewing the articles contained therein…
