The Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court (ECSC) hosted a Media Briefing and Launch of its E-Litigation Portal on Tuesday 3rd March, 2020 at 9:00am at the High Court of Justice, Montserrat High Court, Brades, Montserrat.
The E-Litigation Portal is now LIVE in the Territory of Montserrat for the filing of new High Court Civil and Court of Appeal matters. Montserrat became the sixth Member State and Territory of the ECSC to benefit from the use of the E-litigation portal.
The E-Litigation Portal first went live in the Territory of the Virgin Islands on 12th November 2018 for the management of new matters filed in the Commercial Division of the High Court.
Two key benefits are:
1. The portal is a platform which will transform the way in which the court and legal practitioners do business both in terms of time and costs in the long term; and
2. Court users can now file documents online at any time and from any location. This new technology will revolutionize how members of the public interface with the Court and how the Court manages documents.
