the path to The right to lead in Switzerland in the future on a mountain of paper work. This is the Motto of the race is on Thursday in Lucerne for the digitization project "Justitia 4.0". It takes a lot of technology and a new change in the law.
for 30 years he had tormented mountains now by Files, Post-It set, and passages of text being searched. "There is something Better," said the Federal court's President, Ulrich Meyer in front of about 350 people, from the Swiss judicial landscape who came to the launch of the project to Luzern.
"Justitia 4.0" in the Swiss judicial system is a paradigm shift. So, in the future, the legal files should be electronic and all professional players are required to communicate electronically. To the Swiss justice portal "Justitia.Swiss" is a so-called One-Stop-Shop for the Swiss justice .
It was an organizational and cultural project, said Jacqueline Fehr, Zurich, member of the cantonal government and a Board member of the conference of Cantonal justice and Police Directors (cantonal justice and police Directors), in her opening speech.
30'000 jobs will be changed
Because the digital Transformation will increase the transparency, increase the quality, increase the interdisciplinarity, separated power from Status, open access, make life easier, the judiciary as an employer more attractive, and the Affected humble, said Fehr. The content will not be changed. Will change the access to the Information.
Jens Piesbergen of the project leader said, Justitia 4.0 is a major challenge, an ambitious project for an ambitious country, and at the same time a great opportunity, to the more complex future. With the introduction would be changed to 30'000 jobs.
the first Phase of The eight-year project cost an amount in the low single-digit million range. Further information on the cost one could not make at the present time.
change in the law is needed
The judicial conference of the cantonal justice and police Directors to Finance the project. The share accounted for by the cantons, broken down by number of inhabitants. That is, the cantons and the Confederation work together to tackle a project in the justice sector, genuine federalism, said the Federal court by President Meyer.
Synchronous to the structure of the technical solution, the legislation needs to be adapted. It would be possible, in a new Federal law on Electronic communication, a delegation clause for the platform Justice.swiss and rules about Requirements, application area, or requirements as to the identification. At the level of the Canton, then the organisation of the courts would have to be laws adapted. The parliamentary process is foreseen for 2023.
Already valid submissions electronically to the courts are possible. However, this would only be used in less than one percent of the cases. So had been received in the past year, the Federal court of 50 out of 8000 cases, digital, said Jacques Bühler of the management of the project.
at the most IT-savvy lawyers today would make use of the opportunity. Because the digital signature would be expensive and complex, the postmark for the period manageable, and because often not all documents were available electronically, would have preferred the paper form. To be considered for the project, to take the technical risks in the future, to the state.
Speaking of risks: For the complete digitization of the judiciary there is different than, for example, when E-Voting from today's perspective, not a no-Go, said Fehr. It is the point of the anonymity is eliminated. And what works in NPP, and Patient files must also be at the judiciary. The citizens can choose, in the end, whether you want to be served by the judiciary in paper or electronic Form.
