The County Court has launched its new eFiling system that will allow practitioners to lodge and process court documents via computer.

Users of the eFiling system will be able to direct documents electronically to the relevant court file and then track the progress of applications and documents submitted to the Court 24 hours a day.

The system, developed by information and communications technology company CITEC, will be available for use by the end of this year.

County Court Chief Judge Michael Rozenes said selected legal firms and agencies had trialed the system “to make sure there were no bugs in it”.

“We’ve had some user groups have a look at it and they’re very excited about the idea, especially the bigger firms that have lots of filings to do,” Chief Judge Rozenes told The Australian.

Speaking after the launch on 21 August, CITEC managing director Dr Mark Rainbird said eFiling would save users and the Court money and time by reducing the workload for court and law staff.

For example, he said, the system would relieve the need for clerks to attend court and wait in line to file documents.
