Where is the right document?
Important legal documents are not always easy to find. Research is time-consuming and expensive for all parties involved, and there is a lack of legal representation in court.
In Nigeria, the online platform “LawPavilion” is intended to facilitate access to important legal documents in Nigeria. In theory, lawyers no longer need to keep thick files – it is sufficient to have a smartphone or tablet. On the platform, lawyers, judges and law firms have direct access to sentences and other legal documents. An extensive online library of more than 9,000 codes and about 70,000 case summaries helps Nigerian lawyers horten their search times and thus to represent more people in court in a qualified manner.
Since its launch in 2014, the app has been downloaded more than 5,000 times. LawPavilion also connects the platform with a client and court management tool for lawyers and judges, which allows time-saving management of schedules, court proceedings and other information. It also works offline.
