Strategies of Case Management: Challenges, Solutions and Innovation

Singapore 
Conducted by the SJC in conjunction with the MFA-SCP
This is a 1-week course to examine the various approaches to case management. Backlog is a challenge that almost every judiciary has to contend with. The course will begin with the Singapore Judiciary sharing its experience in eliminating the backlogs in the early 1990s. The multi-pronged strategy adopted more than two decades ago continue to be relevant to address the challenges faced by judiciaries today. Moving forward, to refine the approaches to case management, the modules will include proactive case management, differentiated case management and the modified docket system. The course will also cover innovative ideas such as electronic discovery for civil litigation and judge-led processes to better manage the requirements of different types of litigation. This course will be an excellent platform for judges, magistrates and registrars to discuss the efficacy of the wide range of approaches used to manage case load. This course is specially tailored for Judges and Judicial Officers who have duties relating to case management and judicial administration. There is an added "bonus" module on the International Framework for Court Excellence which will be beneficial to those who are intimately involved in judicial administration.
