Abstract

This paper maps and evaluates the development of digitalisation in the Netherlands, with a focus on civil justice. It describes and analyses legislative novelties and the actual progress that has been made in implementing technology in the judiciary, and examines key private, out-of-court initiatives in this area. While a full analysis in the context of this paper is not possible, it will attempt to draw some conclusions on the potential and challenges of these developments in enhancing access to justice.
