Digitalising judicial services is not for the faint-hearted. The judicial sector is subject to many unique features and involves a plethora of different actors, or user communities. Yet e-CODEX has managed to do so successfully. Its effectiveness lies not so much in technological innovation, but rather in the method and philosophy it is based on. All the more reason to take a closer look into some pivotal underlying principles of the system.

On 2 and 3 May 2019, academics, IT and legal professionals will meet in Lisbon to discuss how to improve the collaboration between these communities in cross-border civil procedures. During this two-day conference, participants will be asked to reflect on issues that currently complicate the cooperation, but also invited to share ideas on possible solutions. The goal of the conference is to identify the issues at stake, to learn of diverging approaches on citizen-centered cross-border justice and to find means to jointly deploy these approaches to bring justice closer to citizens.The event is organized by the ‘e-CODEX Plus project’ in cooperation with the ‘Building EU Civil Justice’ project run by the Erasmus School of Law of the Erasmus University in Rotterdam.
