In the age of artificial intelligence and big data, one wonders to what extent the sheer amount of information gathered will be used for good. This lecture focuses on digitalised tool, which can be applied in civil and commercial disputes, both in European as well as in national contexts. New technologies are capable of assisting judges and other legal professionals in dispute prevention and their early resolution. They also lay the foundation for out-of-court dispute resolution and the digitalisation of courts and tribunals. Whether digital procedures can be equated with classical court procedures is part of a permanent discussion that has recently been fuelled by COVID-19 crisis measures blocking not only the normal functioning of societies, but also of their court procedures. How important is proximity in litigation and dispute resolution for citizens? In other words, we highlight the concrete possibilities for online mechanisms to guarantee effective access to justice.
