e-Estonia live: Digitalising your legal system

Digitalising legal system

Article content

The e-Estonia Live webinar series is hosted weekly on our e-Estonia Facebook page, where we connect with Estonian state experts and company representatives to discuss current issues and the developments within e-Estonia.

A reliable and transparent legal system is one of the cornerstones of a functioning democracy. As such, increasing its efficiency has the potential to improve a given country’s democratic processes. This week we invited Martin Karner, e-Justice Director at Net Group LTD and Evelyn Tohvri, Head of Legislation and Drafts Unit at the Tallinn City Government to discuss one of the ways to do just that – through e-justice. 

Together with our Digital Transformation Adviser, Anett Numa, our guests discussed the current state of Estonia’s e-justice system, which Net Group has played a key role in developing. Where did the need for such a system come from? What is the necessary foundation for such a system to function? And what role will AI play for justice systems in the future, especially given the constantly increasing workload that judges are facing?

Furthermore, Evelyn Tohvri sheds light on how lockdown and remote work affected Tallinn City Government. Just like all other entities in the country, they too had to rapidly rearrange their operations. At the start of the crisis, the City Government did not yet have the capacity to hold electronic sessions remotely. When it became clear that the lockdown would not end within a matter of a few weeks, Tallinn City Government partnered up with Net Group to develop a digital solution to combat the given circumstances.

During the webinar we go into greater depth on what this collaboration entailed and what the resulting digital solution – information system Teele – now allows the Tallinn City Government to do.
