eLodgment Technical Information

Do I need any special software to use eLodgment?

No special software is required to use in eLodgment other than a web browser. General conditions of use for this web site details which browser versions are supported.

Is there a limit on the size of the document I can lodge?

The size limit on documents and on attachments is 2MB.

What security measures are in place?

The first line of security is provided by the registered user process. Only law firms and other appropriately qualified professional users are able to access the system. The registration process means that the data in the system cannot be 'crawled' using an internet search program.

Once a registered user has logged in, the level of access depends on whether or not the registered user is also the solicitor on the record for a party in an action. See: What can I search if I am a registered user? and What documents can I view if I am the solicitor on the record? 

Where the registered user is a solicitor on the record, then, and only then, does the user have the ability to lodge a writ of summons on behalf their client.

The eLodgment system has been configured so that once a document has been lodged, it is locked in the system so that neither other users nor court staff can access the system and change the documents.
