Electronic Filing Service

In 2000, the Electronic Filing System, as part of the Electronic Filing Service, revolutionised the conduct of civil litigation by enabling court documents to be prepared and filed electronically. Recognising the importance of keeping the system relevant and flexible to meet the ongoing demands, the Supreme Court has taken the next step to harness modern technologies and extend the capabilities of the Electronic Filing System with the implementation of the Integrated Electronic Litigation System ("eLitigation").

Some of the key benefits of enhanced system include:

  • Convenient and secure access to the web-based service;
  • Filing can be completed online or saved for submission at a later time;
  • Use of dynamic electronic court forms in place of PDF forms;
  • Full access to all documents in a case as long as it remains active;
  • Management of case files through e-mail and SMS reminder alerts; and
  • A Calendaring and Hearing Management Module to allow for greater flexibility in the selection of hearing dates.
