"The case for e-Court PeaceKeeper has never been "stronger"


( e-Court is an official business partner of Cisco Global Technologies )

Predictions of the future often tell us that we will soon have robot housekeepers, cars that drive themselves, and holidays in space. While these may be still some time away, it is already possible today to imagine a future where we no longer think of going to a physical location (the courts) to resolve our disputes. The ongoing revolution in communications technology and artificial intelligence systems allow us via e-Court to dispose most of our problems with a click of a mouse button.

First, e-Court is a natural extension of the digital revolution, as more of our lives are led online. The result is that people increasingly expect that more of what they do in the physical world should be available online as well, including the resolution of their disputes.

Besides, conventional dispute resolution systems are simply unable to cope with the cross-jurisdictional complexities of cross-border, online disputes. Instead, e-Court works the way the Internet does: it avoids thorny issues of jurisdiction, allows redress to be built directly into contracts, and allows dispute resolution through the use of software.

Second, consumers demands for dispute resolution are changing, with a focus on speed, rather than success. Surprisingly, research has shown that parties in online disputes seem to be more willing to accept an adverse result received faster, rather than have to wait longer for a result (even if the outcome is eventually in their favour). This is especially so in disputes involving minor online commercial transactions (such as online shopping). It turns out that in the commercial world, knowing a result faster may be more valuable than an actual award (obtained after some delay), because earlier certainty enables faster alternative planning.

Third, the increasing digitisation of society presents an immense opportunity to provide justice to the masses. As observed by Richard Susskind, it seemed to be the case (up to at least a few years ago) that access to justice was only available to people rich enough to pay for it. With ODR processes being fast, fair, and free (or cheap), ODR may vastly improve the ability of justice systems to provide universal access to justice.

    'We would be lost without e-Court' This modern concept has everything we need to operate our law firm without too much stress of locating files and checking the old brick and mortor diary book. We certainly wish to 'embrace' the internet, but always wondered in the past how to do this. Cheers to e-Court! We are thankful to become associated".

    'Good Heavens' e-Court is just what the doctor ordered. I have looked for years to find an alternative to my costly lawyer's fees until a friend alerted me about e-Court. I never thought searching files and getting timely alerts on case and appointments could be this easy. This is a must for every body. e-Court certainly offers speedy solutions with prior knowledge of expense and duration". Go on... there is nothing to stop you from REGISTER as member.
