I attended a conference on 14th of July, 2011, organised by the UKM Research Team called “Transformation of Dispute Resolution Mechanisms in Malaysia” with focus on the development of e-court system in Malaysia, its benefits and challenges. The discussion by the panelists was overwhelming, and very informative, especially that the entire session was filled with discussion on the different applications of e-court system in Malaysia, the problems encountered, as well as the achievements to date. The penelists represent views from the civil court, the Shariah court, the AG Chambers, the Malaysian Bar Council as well as the Jabatan Peguam Shar’ie Malaysia.

Congratulations to the organisers for the successful event!

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.

It’s about time the courts in Peninsular Malaysia follow the electronic court (“e-court”) system as implemented in Sabah and Sarawak since few years ago. Wait until minister in the Prime Minister’s Department visit the courts in Sabah and Sarawak, then the nation’s eyes will be drawn to the application of ICT in Peninsular Malaysia.

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…
