South Africa’s Annual Cyber Law Conference will take place next week at the Innovation Hub in Pretoria

The fifth edition Annual Cyber Law Conference presented by Barend Burgers
 Attorneys will be held next week at the Innovation Hub in Pretoria, attracting
 some of South Africa’s top legal personalities.
Speakers at the event include the Minister of Justice and Constitutional
Development Jeff Radebe, Deputy Minister of Justice and Constitutional
Development Andries Nel, Chief Director of Court Services Mr Pieter du
Randt, Professor Mervyn King, Pria Chetty and Brendan Hughes.
“The South African civil and criminal justice system is still mainly manual
and paper based, and is struggling to cope with the demands of modern
society. Court files and dockets are lost on a regular basis,” said conference
 organizer Barend Burgers.
“Delays caused by lost/misplaced dockets and court files frustrate not
only prosecutors, attorneys and presiding officers, but also the general
public. Justice must be seen to be done, and justice delayed damage the
perception of the justice system in the eyes of the general public.”
The Department of Justice and Constitutional Development has launched a
pilot project in KZN with regards to its e-justice program, which will
introduce amongst others an electronic court management process.
At this years’ Cyber Law Conference the Department of Justice
 and Constitutional Development will showcase its progress in this regard.
