It is common knowledge that the legal sector moves in adaptation of technology slower than other industries. The root for this is found in the courts unwillingness to change the principles and procedures that it is accustomed to. Something that is actually a necessity because of the need of certainty in laws and legal positions in society; so that everyone knows their rights and duties and upholds them.
It is why legal principles existed for centuries and can be dated back to civilisaiton itself. The principles of fairness are the same no matter where you go. What differs is the details and procedure. It is why such details and procedures have been established in the way they are, and while admittedly rigged and old, they serve a purpose. That is to provide clarity and certainty to all members of society to uphold such rules and laws, which are based on the universal principles of fairness, equality and justice. That is why respect, deterrence and sometimes fear is required to safeguard the system.
Law is the moral minimum – lowest ethical standard – Unethical actions are not always illegal, but illegal actions are almost always unethical.
Although we understand that the necessity of such measures, we are strong believes in innovation and adaptation of new technologies to support our cause. To provide ease of access and information to develop and advance the legal system. To speed the infamously slow process of delivering that, which is just; for that “justice delayed is justice denied”.
This is why we at Sahwan Law are one of the early adopters of an innovative cloud base solution that ties us with our clients in real-time and provides them with any necessary information and updates at a click of a button.
It is why we adopted a minimum paper policy with an ability to switch to paperless whenever the rest of the legal system catching up on us. It is why only the absolute necessary is printed and every paper is scanned and properly archived in our cloud (which is further backed up for precautionary measures).
