Ensuring Access To Justice Through Information Technology

Abstract

Ensuring the accessibility of justice is currently associated with e-justice, the mechanisms of which are aimed at ensuring the accessibility of the judiciary, its openness and transparency for citizens and organizations. The gradual transition to information technology in the administration of justice has been one of the main directions of reforming the judicial system for several years now. The process of implementation of modern digital technologies is dynamic, however, it is carried out only in relation to some procedural actions and the functionality of the court staff, not covering such activities entirely. Using a materialistic, positivist worldview, applying a number of general scientific, special scientific and particular methods, the author concludes that the use of modern information and communication technologies will allow solving a number of problems related to the quality of justice, the timing of legal proceedings, insufficient awareness of citizens of the activities of the judicial system, ineffective execution of judicial acts. From the point of view of practical significance, the implementation of the proposals made by the author will speed up the process of introducing modern technologies in the activities of courts of general jurisdiction. In particular, the introduction of electronic document management and the formation of an electronic file in the courts of general jurisdiction will ultimately result in reducing the burden on the courts apparatus, cut of budget expenditures. Digital technologies will increase the level of efficiency of the judicial system as a whole, make it more mobile and meet the needs of modern society.
