I have started working on my project to develop a software application to manage court systems. See earlier blog post: Judicial Corruption and What Can Be Done About It:
I have started to put together a team and we are in the early design stages. We are designing the application as a multi-stakeholder system with access for court clerks and other court staff, judges, judicial officials, lawyers and individual parties. Initially, we will limit the application to civil cases that fall under OHADA (an organization that harmonizes business law across 16 African nations) law and extend it later to other types of cases.
We expect to be done with the first phase of the project by the end of 2010.
If you know of any similar application currently being used in an African country, can you please post a comment?
