Being a double-edged sword, at one end the adoption of ICT provides considerable potentials to improve the delivery of justice. However, at the other end it raises numerous practical and administrative hurdles, as well as the issue of the acquisition of skills and readiness of the court officials, legal practitioners and litigants in embracing the technologies
