A Singapore-based solutions provider is helping governments around the world implement electronic litigation systems that can minimise the workloads of courts for a more efficient justice system.
CrimsonLogic has implemented electronic litigation (e-ligitation) systems for the governments of Singapore, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Mauritius, and is seeing increased interest in the implementations of such systems worldwide.
CrimsonLogic provides e-government solutions, including those for e-litigation, e-filing and case management, for use by the courts, lawyers, and other government agencies for seamless collaboration.
For Singapore, the company helped implement the Electronic Filing System (EFS) for the Singapore Judiciary and LawNet in collaboration with the Singapore Academy of Law.
LawNet is a one-stop portal of electronic information and databases, which lawyers used for their research. CrimsonLogic said 90 per cent of all lawyers in Singapore subscribe to the LawNet.
CrimsonLogic also implemented for the Ministry of Justice in the UAE a system that enables seamless case filing, notary services, as well as case and documentation management.
For the Supreme Court of Mauritius, CrimsonLogic is working on an eJudiciary platform for e-filing and with case management capabilities for a paperless, efficient and transparent judiciary.
"Our e-litigation solutions not only help the courts, but also lawyers, lawmakers and the legal industry at large by offering simple solutions, such as discovery and smart searches, that shortens the time spent on document collation, making it possible for them to be more focused on managing the case at hand and their clients," said Tan Sian Lip, vice president, domains and technology, CrimsonLogic.
Tan added that it is important for the legal system to have a solution that will help streamline their research and filing of the pertinent documents.
To help governments and those in the legal community understand these benefits and issues related to electronic litigation, CrimsonLogic recently worked with the Singapore Academy of Law to organise the two-day International Conference on Electronic Litigation. Issues such as electronic discovery, electronic hearings, the preservation of electronic evidence and preservation of evidence were discussed in light of new electronic solutions.
