New Technologies — New Justice – a joint project of the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights and Clifford Chance
In today’s world, new technologies are present in virtually all spheres of life – and they are also becoming increasingly important for the modern justice system. The project seeks to examine the actual presence of new technologies in the justice system of Poland and around the world, as well as to identify the main risks associated with modern legal technologies and the most promising solutions to these risks. The advancing digitalisation of the justice system and the digital modernisation of the legal system is an inevitable consequence of the need to ensure that the legal system keeps up with the times.
That is why the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights and Clifford Chance work to identify solutions for improving the justice system to ensure that the rights and freedoms of individuals are not only respected but also exercised more easily.
New Technologies — New Justice is a joint project of the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights and Clifford Chance.

Why it’s time to digitize courts?
Why it’s time to digitize courts? Is this justice accessible to eveerybody? How digitization of the justice system affects those digitally excluded?
We will publish a series of talks called ‘New Technologies – New Justice – New Questions’ and try to find answers to these questions and maybe solutions which are not obvious.
“New” trials in “old” courts, or how the pandemic changes court sittings
The COVID-19 pandemic has amplified the long-standing calls for more extensive digitisation of the justice system. “E-trials” provide an example of the use of new technologies in the courts. They can not only become a solution to such problems as access to courts or lengthy court proceedings but can also help the judiciary to deal with emergencies, say, a pandemic that prevents direct interpersonal contacts.
