Digitalization of Justice

Online panel discussion

The current COVID-19 pandemic proofs the need for digitalization in every area of life - including in justice. While first steps are already taken, there are still a lot of obstacles on the way to a digital access for citizens to justice and automation of court hearings. In this context, Estonia with its multiple approaches to build a digital society is considered a pioneer in Europe. What are the opportunities and challenges of the digitalization of justice? What can other European countries learn from Estonia? We're going to discuss this with five experts from Estonia, Germany and Romania: Leanika Tamm, Judge at Pärnu County Court, Estonia, Ingo Groß, Court President at Brunswick District Court, Germany, Kai Härmand, Judge at Harju County Court, Estonia, Benedikt Quarch, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of the Legal Tech company RightNow Group, Germany and Mariana Feldioreanu, Court President at Bucharest District Court, Romania.
