Students at Strathmore Law School to get access to latest digital evidence management technology

London UK & Nairobi KE, May 23, 2018, CaseLines and Strathmore University, today announced a partnership to provide free access to its digital evidence management platform for students of Strathmore Law School.

Students will be able to use CaseLines, built on Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform, for free, allowing them the ability to create their own digital case files for moot court sessions or during their coursework assignments. Students can invite other parties into the case, such as their opponent, judge and other observers, showing how parties can collaborate around a single digital case file.

Students will be able to experience first-hand the benefits of digital evidence management and in-court presentation tools, allowing them more time to focus on their advocacy skills and less time on preparing paper bundles; giving life to the notion of ‘courts of the future’ from their time in law school.

“We aim at training excellent lawyers; critical thinkers who are able to grasp a better understanding of justice” commented Luis Franceschi, Dean of Strathmore Law School. “Giving students access to the latest technology, ensures they emerge with experience of digital technologies, which will set them up well in their future careers.”

“Our curriculum merges core subjects in legal theory and practice with courses on ethics and humanities making the student an agent of change in East Africa and beyond. We are determined to achieve legal excellence in the quest for justice.”

Commenting on this initiative, David Jackson of CaseLines said, “This is an important initiative for us. CaseLines not only makes the delivery of justice more efficient, it also has an important role to play in supporting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals – through the promotion of justice and strong institutions. Giving the students access to CaseLines and working with our partner Microsoft, will allow them to experience the future of digital justice, trials and hearings and position them to carry the flame of innovation into the legal community. They will emerge with experience of digital technologies, which will set them up well in their future careers.”

Mr Jackson was speaking at the Symposium: Courts of the Future held in Nairobi this week by the Strathmore Law School.
