Africa’s leading provider of legal technologies, LawPavilion Business Solutions, is poised to introduce new Artificial Intelligence (AI) System geared towards smart justice delivery to Nigerian judges as they hold their biennial Judges Conference in Abuja.

According to the company’s MD/CEO, Ope Olugasa, these solutions and new features have been specially designed for judges, using AI and emerging technologies, in what the company has termed Smart Justice Delivery.

Olugasa said Nigerian Judges could now easily review and evaluate counsel’s written addresses and submissions in seconds.

The new solution is also capable of identifying a judge’s previous judgments on similar issues, making adjudication easier and faster, without judges having to always reinvent the wheel in deciding each matter before them.

Also in the solution is, an enhanced Appellate Feedback System for Judges (AFSJ), which enables High Court Judges to know how their judgments have fared at the appellate courts.

Furthermore, Olugasa talked about the introduction of Personalised Law Reporting for High Court Judges, using AI Modelling and Profiling.

He emphasised that the solution would enable judges to preserve their legacies on the bench through technology.

Olugasa went on to speak about how the company’s deep understanding of Nigeria’s infrastructural peculiarities led them to developing a WhatsApp enabled E-Filing solution that allows counsel to file their processes in court even with minimal internet connectivity using WhatsApp.

According to him, speedy filing equals swift access to justice.

He tasked the judiciary to adopt accelerated access to justice through the LawPavilion E-Registry integrated with E-Filing and E-Service on WhatsApp.

He described the solution as Nigeria’s first virtual end-to-end E-Registry System with WhatsApp enabled E-Filing, E-Payment and E-Service.

In his statement, he stated that the solutions are made by Nigerians for Nigerians to help solve some of the challenges facing the country’s justice sector.

With these solutions, Olugasa explained, LawPavilion underscores her undying passion for and commitment to accelerating access to justice through technology in Nigeria and across Africa.

According to him, these solutions are easily scalable to other parts of the continent as they gain more validation and trust in the entire legal ecosystem of Nigeria.
