Abstract

Drawn from a doctoral research, the first part of this paper aims at discussing
the concept of ICT adoption in the judicial system by discussing the different
applications of ICT in the courts of Malaysia and other selected jurisdictions
such as the United States of America, Spain, Italy, Singapore and Australia.
Apart from the concept, the benefits and advantages that could be derived
from these technologies would also be reviewed. 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.
