HiiL Innovating Justice in partnership with the Strathmore Law School is set to host Innovating Justice event in Kenya’s capital Nairobi.
This event will be geared towards gauging East Africa’s readiness for Justice Technology. The event is said to bring together stakeholders in both the Justices and Technology sectors from across the East African region. The attendees are expected to deliberate on the justice eco-system and find ways technology can be adapted to overcome certain hurdles in the implementation of justice.
Already, there have been previous debates questioning the availability and accessibility of justice to the average Kenyan citizen. The debates also questioned the transparency of some of the justice system problems. The venue for the Nairobi Innovating Justice will be at the Strathmore Law School premises on April 21st, 2016.
Evelyne Wangui, a liaison agent for HiiL East Africa, talked about the need for emphasis on promoting justice across all sectors. In a statement, Wangui said, “We are observing technology application in a number of sectors, but the justice sector has largely been left out, especially across Africa. I believe adoption of technology is a key factor that will promote better access to justice for people across the continent.”
The Nairobi Innovating Justice event will also include a digital training workshop that will be spearheaded by the Bloggers Association of Kenya (BAKE), Strathmore Law School and LegalZoom. There will also be talks on how to run a successful SME and the governing laws on Intellectual Property rights.
