Deputy Registrar of the Supreme Court of Canada on Courtroom Modernization

The Osgoode Hall Law School blog The Court recently interviewed Louise Meagher, the Deputy Registrar of the Supreme Court of Canada, about our Court Modernization Project.

The interview covers a number of points:
  • the arrival of "e-hearings": judges, counsel and the media will have electronic access to all filings and documents in the courtroom starting in the October 2008 session
  • the draft Policy for Access to Court Records fo the Court: this proviudes for the possibility of posting appeal factums on the Court's website (currently being circulated to stakeholders)
  • the possibility of webcasts and podcasts of oral arguments (under consideration)
  • the implementation of full-blown e-filing by 2009
