PLANS ARE in the pipeline by the judiciary to train judges to enable them be abreast with new technological ways of adjudicating cases.
Other stakeholders of the court system, including staffs of the court and lawyers, would also benefit from the training.
This has become possible, following plans to upgrade infrastructure in the court system as part of the e-Justice project introduced by government.
This was disclosed by the Chief Justice, Her Ladyship, Sophia Akuffo, during the 15 years anniversary celebration of the Law School at the KNUST in Kumasi.
“Having successfully piloted the e-Justice project system at the Law Court Complex in Accra, which houses 44 high courts, and with lessons learnt, we are ready to roll out the second phase of the e-Justice project to cover the Supreme Court, the court of appeal and courts in regional capitals including Tema by 2022.
“Certainly, the lower courts will follow suit to have an electronic platform that offers all potential users, a more efficient justice system.
“This obviously calls for infrastructure upgrades, training and retraining of judges and staff, lawyers and indeed all potential court users”, she said.
