Online Courts: Benefits and desires
Perhaps, one of the most controversial issues is online activities. Nowadays, traffic jam, high cost of public and private transportation system, hectic daily schedules and economic issues persuading people to spend more time at their offices or homes, have excused citizens to use online facilities more and more. Online courts are proposed to assist all parties involved in a judicial system to meet their individual or official needs. Whereas it has some benefits in the field of saving time, energy and money, this new innovation can make them face some drawbacks encouraging them to remove this plan from their policy maker’s desk. Generally, it seems the privileges outweigh its problems.
First and foremost, people do not have any solution to live better unless they focus on the time consuming item like energy and economic ones. Undoubtedly, one of the most important issues in megacities is about how people should spend their time and energy as what they are expected to do. People have a myriad of problems to tackle as designed by their daily reminders, because the human relationships have been complicated more and more and expanded more deeply. Their duties as an employer, employee, father, mother, wife, husband and so on are more requested to the extent that they are necessary for a citizen to live individually and socially.
An official session in the court will some times waste all their daily time . For example, a plaintiff or accused person should be in the court building one hour in advance. They have to exchange some documents if they have already recruited a lawyer for their claim. It is a serious time consuming to talk to their translator, if they are a foreigner who cannot or do not speak to the court language. In addition, the court buildings are normally in the city centers where they are faced to some disgusting traffic jam. Therefore, they must take a bus or taxi one or two hours sooner. they need this time to go back to their office or home after the session of the court too. By clicking a botton and defending their claim by an online court session, their time will be saved. It is obvious that their energy will be managed similarly. They are not obliged to spend more energy about their arranging the suitable clothes, taking taxi or bus, or changing their daily plans or even discussing with their boss to request a leave or asking their friends or colleagues to do their duties for this period of time. Hence, their money will be managed better. Their leave, the fees for taxi or bus or laundries, and son on will be decreased, if their physical presence is not obligatory. On the other hand, the fees managing a session court like for hosting, cleaning, power energy, security check and so on shrink. The governments can save their budget for more necessary duties instead of the recruitment of security staff, for example.
Having cited above points, I believe strongly in the idea that the online courts can assist people with living more comfortably, while it is not possible to remove traditional court session completely. Seemingly, people can enjoy more facilities in a judicial body if the online services have been developed more. Because some people are obliged to ignore their rights, due to the fact that they are unable to lodge their applications or defend their claims in person. They are also suffering not to recruit a lawyer because they have not enough money for that. As a result, the online judicial services can prepare the best facilitates to achieve individual and social justice.
