RIYADH, Saudi Arabia, March 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The Saudi Arabian Ministry of Justice (MOJ) successfully concluded its inaugural International Conference on Justice (ICJ) in Riyadh. Over two days, the conference brought together 50 jurists, legal experts and policy makers from around the world to explore how technology is transforming legal systems and making justice more transparent and accessible to all.

The Minister of Justice of Saudi Arabia, H.E. Walid al-Samaani, noted: “The last two days have been a great success, as we were able to exchange knowledge and experience with the brightest legal minds from around the world.” And he added: “Our hope is that the dialogue and cooperation fostered during this conference will have a significant impact on the future development of digital justice solutions globally.”

With 25 speakers and 6 main sessions, the conference invited participants to participate under the theme ‘Facilitating access to justice through digital innovation’. Topics covered ranged widely, from the role of digitization in improving pretrial justice to the future of AI in the practice of law and the use of big data to predict court outcomes.

The last day of the ICJ featured three main sessions: ‘Using AI to improve justice’, ‘Data analysis for the improvement of justice’ and ‘The future of alternative dispute resolution in light of the transformation digital’. Participating speakers included experts in the fields of AI ethics, data analysis, digital mediation and remote conciliation, who shared knowledge and experiences on how digitally enabled judiciaries can create more prosperous societies and ensure transparent, accessible and equitable justice for all.

Since the introduction of Vision 2030, Saudi Arabia’s digitization efforts have established the Kingdom as a world leader in digital justice. As of 2023, more than 90% of the Kingdom’s judicial services are digitized, and the Ministry of Justice’s Najiz portal provides users with access to more than 150 electronic judicial services. In the past year alone, the Kingdom’s expanding digital services facilitated more than 2.37 million online hearings, delivered more than 1.1 million judgments, and issued more than 5.2 million electronic powers of attorney. By hosting the conference, the Kingdom sought to provide global legal stakeholders with an important new platform to exchange knowledge on digital transformation and foster international cooperation on the digital future of legal systems.
