Information on the electronic ways of legal communication

The Bund-Länder Commission for Data Processing and Rationalization is very intensely working to improve the electronic ways of legal communication. Its goal is to make it possible for any party taking part in court proceedings to make binding statements over against a court or justice authorities in electronic form. The various issues concerning this field are dealt with by the task force units established by the Bund-Länder Commission: “Electronic Ways of Legal Communication" – dealing with the legal and organizational aspects and “IT Technical Standards in Justice” – dealing with the technical aspects of these issues.
