The CEPEJ, via its working group on cyberjustice and AI (CEPEJ-GT-CYBERJUST), decided in 2020 to create a European Cyberjustice Network.
On 16 November 2021, the CEPEJ officially launched the European Cyberjustice Network (ECN), in virtual presence of more than 100 experts appointed by their Governments, European or global professional associations, research and academic institutions.
The network will provide a platform for interdisciplinary exchange of good practices in the field of cyberjustice and artificial intelligence as well as for exchanges of views about challenges in the implementation of IT and artificial intelligence solutions in judicial systems.
The network should also contribute to and support the initiation of new tools, actions and co-operation projects.
The network is composed in particular of policy makers, ICT experts, judges, court staff, court administrators/managers, lawyers, enforcement officers and scholars.
During this conference, the recently adopted CEPEJ Guidelines on videoconferencing in judicial proceedings have been introduced and their implementation in the different countries have been discussed.
