The Anambra State Judiciary is set to commence electronic filing of court processes, virtual hearing and electronic recording of proceedings.

This was made known by Justice J Nweze, the Administrative Judge of Onitsha Judicial Division during the 3rd Ozo Amanke Okafor memorial lecture and Launching of Ozo Amanke Okafor Bar Centre in Awka, the state capital.

He urged Lawyers and judicial workers to embrace the use of technology in their practice

Justice Nweze said: “The lawyer who will excel must be ready to learn, un-learn and re-learn the law. He must be devoted to continuous legal education. The law report must be his regular companion.

“The world is going digital, the resource materials are all online, those who refuse to upgrade will be left behind. Some state judiciaries have already adopted the electronic filing processes, virtual hearing and electronic recording of proceedings.

“We must therefore ensure that not only do we acquire the necessary skills, we must also acquire the necessary tools. The lawyer of the future is one who must be committed to continuous personal development. He must understand that he is a student of life, because the law keeps changing.”
