Digital Strategy for Courts and Tribunals - Consultation Draft September 2022
Judiciary seeks feedback on vision for future of technology in Courts and Tribunals
NOTE: CONSULTATION CLOSED 30 September 2022
The judiciary has released for consultation a draft Digital Strategy for the Courts and Tribunals of Aotearoa New Zealand. The draft Digital Strategy will inform decisions about the use of technology in New Zealand’s court system over the next decade.
The Digital Strategy addresses how technology can enable courts to do better what they do now, capitalising on the lessons learned about use of technology in the courts during the Covid-19 pandemic. It also looks at how technology can enable courts to administer justice in new ways to better serve the community, including those whose justice needs are not currently being met.
The draft Digital Strategy is open for consultation until 30 September 2022. Feedback is welcomed from individuals, or interested groups, to CourtsDigitalStrategy@justice.govt.nz.
