Since the introduction of technology to facilitate litigation, the judiciary system is no longer tagged ‘old fashioned’. Provision is being made to promote easy access to legal documents and information. Caselines eliminates the excessive use of paperwork in courtrooms by introducing a digital evidence management software. The Office of the Chief Justice of South Africa just recently introduced the software into their litigation system.

Before the introduction of technology, lawyers had to file cases every time they had a court case. It cost money to buy the paper, file and retrieve cases and to tender legal evidence. The introduction of an easy-to-use cloud-based software makes digital evidence more accessible and securing a testimony much easier.
The platform is used to securely collate, share and present evidence in a single software. The tools will help lawyers create cost-effective pre-trials, video conferences for virtual hearings and easily file cases. It seeks to answer the 16th Sustainable Development Goal of the United Nations – Promote just, peaceful and inclusive societies.
Caselines is currently delivering digital services in courtrooms in the UK and UAE. The Court of Justice of the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) recently adopted the technology in all 21 member countries. The platform holds over 300000 cases and evidence in a secure system.
