Live the e-Court spirit : Nobody stands alone!
For many guests, it will be the first e-Court event; quite a few people will arrive on their own and/or from out-of-town. Please help make them feel welcome. If you see someone alone in a corner, it would be great if you introduce them to your friends. In this way, we can share the spirit in connecting like minded people, and everyone will have a lovely time. Thanks!

What is e-Court all about?
e-Court.au Legal Services International Inc.( hereafter referred as e-Court ) is an independent group of experienced professionals like (former) lawyers, barristers, solicitors or attorneys, judges, university professors, industry and other legal interest groups. e-Court aims to provide competent, affordable, secure, transparent and speedy justice for everyone. e-Court also provides an uniform litigation system throughout Australia without the need to understand the peculiarities existing in each provincial legislative system.
Labor disputes and other civil disputes between businesses and/or individuals can be submitted to a real Internet court. The new private court, which is called e-Court, guarantees ruling within six weeks after notification of the case. The verdict of e-Court is based on contract principles ( e.g binding arbitration ). View also a legally binding verdict. e-Court cases take no more than six weeks (excluding any appeal of four weeks). This makes the process to cost much less than ordinary courts, which to obtain a ruling in Australia take on average between 70-90 weeks. Moreover, private individuals and businesses agree upfront with their attorneys the maximum period in advance and total costs. This will ensure that e-Court does not result in financial surprises. It is important to note that e-Court is extremely flexible because the individual or company can start a case using e-Court with/without the assistance of a legal professional. In many situations the claimant and/or defendant feel they wish to avoid legal expenses and obtain justice without expenses from legal counsel. See also How we work

This transformation is being driven by two irresistible forces: the commoditization of legal services and the IT revolution.
Commoditization refers to the evolutionary pull of the law toward greater standardization, systemization and packaging, in contrast to the more traditional model of lawyer as personal adviser (what Susskind refers to as bespoke services). The IT revolution is transformative because disruptive technologies such as automated document assembly, online legal guidance and legal open-sourcing are allowing clients to by-pass the lawyer as intermediary.
Susskind paints a stark picture of life as a corporate general counsel. Because corporations tend to regard legal expenses as an overhead, to be monitored, managed and trimmed, they face pressure from their boards to:
