Information Technology (IT) has found its way into legal practice and into the Judiciary. The present publication provides an insight into the developments in three continents, and more specifically a country in each of these continents: Australia (Australia), Singapore (Asia), and Venezuela (South America). In addition, reports by Norway, the Netherlands and Italy are provided. These countries are considered the best equipped and organized in IT for the Judiciary in Europe. Amongst the issues addressed are electronic filing systems, decision support systems, the employment of knowledge management, and on-line services, including publication of verdicts. The central issue in the development of IT support for the Judiciary worldwide appears the use of case management systems. This book is a comprehensive source on the use of IT in legal organizations, in particular the Judiciary, practitioners (attorneys, company lawyers, consultants), governments, but also for academics and students.
