The Nigerian judiciary has taken a giant stride in providing a simple, fast and efficient communication means between lawyers and the courts. The Judiciary, under the auspices of National Judicial Council, initiated a campaign to design a case management software for our courts and a legal mail for all lawyers in Nigeria. The project has put in place the case management software and legal mail for Judges and Lawyers. The project is uniquely designed to meet justice sector needs in Nigeria. It enables the Nigerian Judiciary to improve its justice system by automating court processes, effecting service of processes and supporting case/court management through the use of real-time data and analytics. It also strengthens the accessibility and integrity of the justice system by enabling lawyers to interface electronically with judicial bodies and services.
Professionally, the Legal Email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) uplifts the status of a lawyer by portraying to clients, a professional and business minded image. The email accounts are designed with unique features, they are free from advertisements, taglines or pop ups therefore containing less risks of spam and comes with a 50GB mailbox size. The messages coming from such professional email addresses not only inspire trust but also depict credibility at first glance. Owning this email account automatically certifies the authenticity of lawyers to the courts and their clients respectively because some level of professional background check is conducted at registration stage. The legal mail is envisioned to become the main medium of communication between courts and lawyers in terms of court processes with a delivery report feature [proof of service].
The objective of the project is to bridge communication gaps between the Courts and Lawyers and allow for a more efficient administration of justice system. For more information on the Legal mail, Email: Support@nigerianbar.ng
