Roundtable on Timely Justice

Friday, 12 December 2014
4.30 pm - 6.00 pm
CCS Office

A Round table was facilitated at CCS office to discuss the issue of Timely Justice on Friday, 12th December 2014. Every participant proposed solutions to the issue of backlog and delay in the legal system. After listing down all the solutions, there was voting by the participants (2 votes per participant) on choosing viable solutions considering (i) potential impact and (ii) likelihood of adoption. It was also noted that most solutions pertained to addressing accountability deficit in the legal system. The group was of the view that among the above mentioned solutions, ‘Right to timely justice Bill’ had the best rhetoric potential. It can help to mobile masses. Possibly, a number of other minor reforms can also be put in the same bill. Videography and dejudicialisation were next two most preferred solutions. The group also felt that soon there should be a discussion on strategic plan for advocacy. The event was attended by 10 stakeholders including lawyers, NGO representatives and law students. Mohit Satyanand (Advisor-iJustice) moderated the meeting.
