Transition from Electronic Proceedings; The Use of AI in Judicial Processes

The head of the Judiciary Research Institute stated that in order to facilitate people’s access to justice, we need to transition from the stage of electronic proceedings.

Dr. Mahdi Hadi said: Electronic proceedings were a solution to solve problems in judicial processes, and now the time has come to transition from this stage, and for the implementation of justice, we must use the capacity of Artificial Intelligence in processes.

According to the Public Relations and Information of the Judiciary, Hojjatul-Islam Dr. Hadi pointed out the importance of the digital court in Iran’s judicial system in the specialized meeting “Technological Solutions in Proceedings” which was held with the participation of the Judiciary Research Institute at the Legal and Judicial Innovation Campus.

He said: Although articles in the 1392 Criminal Procedure Law are dedicated to the provisions of electronic proceedings and this proceeding is the introduction of the digital court, but with the abundance of cases and available facilities, other tools should be used to achieve justice.

Hadi mentioned the satisfaction of the people and judicial colleagues as the criterion of a favorable trial and stated: The Judiciary Research Institute has taken the first steps to use new technologies and the field of Metaverse in judicial matters so that the neglected field of artificial intelligence is taken into consideration in the trial process.

In the definition of artificial intelligence, Dr. Hadi called the existence of an integrated platform to carry out processes important and said: transformational technologies such as artificial intelligence, blockchains, cloud computing and big data can be created by creating an environment suitable for judges, experts and lawyers and facilitate access to justice.

The head of the JRI stated: Although artificial intelligence has not been fully used in the judicial process in other countries, it seems that this tool will be used by judges in the near future. In the current environment, AI can provide samples to the judge, but ultimately the decision will be up to the judge himself.

Dr. Hadi considered the lack of integration of components as one of the plagues of electronic proceedings and said: For the success and optimal utilization of the capacity of artificial intelligence, the whole process must be integrated.
