COVID-19 reminded us that digitalization of the core functions of our societies is so much more than a policy trend; it is an essential strategy for every state to adopt in order to safeguard its citizens’ access to them.

The ecosystem of Justice makes no exception, and building a resilient and robust digital infrastructure serves as the best bulletproof strategy to guarantee access to Justice in the current crisis the world is facing. But with opportunity comes responsibility, as extreme times can potentially cause the weakening of the rule of law.
