A database is available for use in matters heard in the electronic courtrooms of the Supreme Court in Perth. The Court's capability and practices for e-Trials and e-Appeals are set out in the Consolidated Practice Directions (see 1.2.5 – The Use of Electronic Material in Trials and Appeals).
Before a matter receives a hearing date, the court and relevant parties must decide if the hearing is to be conducted using electronic technology. If so, documents relevant to the matter must be submitted electronically for compiling on the database.
During the trial or appeal, all parties, including the judge are able to access the database. The judge's associate will control the display of information to the entire court. Counsel will not need to know how to use the database to call up an exhibit.
For further information about electronic trials please contact the Supreme Court of Western Australia on the number below
