Roman Abramovich case became try-out for paperless trial
The technology of paperless cloud computing has reportedly saved five million sheets of paper.
In the recent Boris Berezovsky vs. Roman Abramovich case, legal representatives have moved to exclude the use of paper during the trial, which can signal the end of the long process of filing documents.
The system behind this new type of technology is nothing new but with the approval of the High Court in London to adapt to the fast-changing environment of laptops, tablets and cloud computing, lawyers will be able to use these devices and save documents – reducing their use of paper which will ease their impact on the environment.
Becoming mobile will make life much more convenient for lawyers who won’t be dragged down with folders filled with papers.
Magnum-Cloud, developed by London-based Opus 2 International, holds the archive of every court documents with research and case laws, which are transcripted and huperlinked for legal practitioners to quickly access.
Mrs. Justice Gloster, the judge present at the paperless court case, was said to be surprised on the fluency of the trial as reported in the London Evening Standard. “As the trial went on we realised it was a fantastic system which made life far easier and its cost was nothing compared with the cost of copying bundles,” she said.
“It’s a cost saving for the client and life saving for the world,” said Grahma Smith-Bernal, Founder of Opus 2.
