Paperless court saves five million pages

Paperless court saves five million pages

March 20, 2012

Roman Abramovich case utilises cloud computing in world-first paperless trial.

Cloud computing technology is heralded as saving five million pages of paper in the recent Boris Berezovsky v Roman Abramovich case in a world-first paperless trial, reports London Evening Standard.

MagnusCloud, a cloud-based system developed by Opus 2 International, was used for court proceedings and features an archive of every court document, research and related case law, as well as transcripts and synchronised audio recordings of the evidence and speeches.

The system garnered acclaim from the “normally traditional” Bar and Judiciary. London Evening Standard states that pre-trial paperwork amounted to 200,000 pages across 15,000 documents, with each trial bundle costing approximately £30,000 ($47,573/€36,001) to produce.

Mrs Justice Gloster was said to have immediately embraced the principle, and one senior lawyer involved in the case commented: “As the trial went on we realised it was a fantastic system which made life far easier and its cost was nothing compared with the cost of copying bundles.

“Lawyers have always been conservative and won’t give up papers in trials easily but there is a new generation of lawyers and the younger kids are much happier working without paper.”

Graham Smith-Bernal, Founder and CEO, Opus 2, remarked: “It’s a cost saving for the client and life saving for the world.”
