CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATION
Computer has a relatively modest role to play at present in the proper management of organizations and modern firms. It is compulsory that based on our understanding of computer and its implementation in the processing requirements of information it is ubiquitous in organization.
The project work aimed at designing and implementing a computerized case filling system, to provide information for the effective and efficient process in the case proceedings. The work also gives the best on now timely, accurate and reliable information. It can be corrected. Also , the use of computer in our courtroom recording techniques on data collected storage of such data no matter how large and also quick access to them on retrievals. Of such information when they are required.
1.1 STATEMENT OF THE PROBEM
One of the bottlenecks in the case filling process at present in the difficulty of securing transcripts of proceedings specially enough for appeals to be heard promptly.
In the case of “02” conspiracy trial in great britian “R.V. Anderson(1972) QB. 304 in computers and the law page 228, for instance, back was exceptionally allowed pending the appeal because there was likely a five month delay before the transcript were available. This delay is largely caused by the difficulty in security and adequate number of short and writers and transcripers. In under developed countries during hearing in the court proceedings judges, lawyers, magistrates and court there’s mainly use the long hand and short hand in any recording procedures which in any way does not facilitate transcript productions prompt whereby some cases remain unheard in the law court for ten to fifteen years.
1.2 PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
The purpose of this study is to design and implement a computerized casefilling system which is aimed at the useful application of computer to improve the problem stated. Hence the study tends to design and implement computer in an effective, keeping good records and adequate security of information stored.
In countries like united states it is common for court reporting to be done on special stenographic machines one solution which has been investigated by “Aspen system corporation” is the development of programmes capable of transcribing the stenographic tape automatically into computer readable tape, where upon transcripts could be produced on high speed printer without any delay at all. This system was made to allow more than one person talking at once, since it is very difficult distinguish what was happening and that was the purpose of this work for reporting to be heard promptly.
1.3 AIMS AND OBJECTIVES OF THESING
The aim of this work is to create and implement a computerized casefilling system for system for effective and efficient way of court reporting to be heard promptly and for immediate judgment. It is also designs a system which is used to keep good records of data and information since the courts serves as surety and trusted to avoid fear and wear of some information.
In the criminal trail it is to a certain the fact, apply the law of these facts that is judgment and to sentence the caused if found guilty and computer is to facilitate improving management and corporate performance by the improvement of information flow within the corporation. It is also aimed at providing accurate complete and timely data for the automation services which makes the process of information to be fast and economical. It also introduces the use of a special stenographic machine and the use of tape recording where a programme is developed that is capable of transcribing the stenographic tape into computer readable tape.
1.4 THE DELIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY
This work is to design and implement a computerized casefilling system which comprises the specific division on how claim are sued to the court and how best computer can be implemented to achieve the required aim and also accomplish the problem stated in the work.
It will review related literature on how cases are being treated and trial of such cases as regards related topic and referencing to text books pertaining to it. It further relates on how cases are treated in different stages. It retrieve information contained in the write.
1.5 THE LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY
In this case due to financial constraints encountered the research work cannot goals that wide to gather data and information for the research work. Since Nigerian courts are not computerized, it is very difficult to give much detailed information about computer and court, again few text books completely elaborate information about computer and its information system in the law court. Again some information about computer and its information system in the law court.
Again some information required are confidential matters, so the source were unwilling to retrieve such information required.
A lot of problems were encountered in the process of drawing up the program for this research piece. Most of these stem from inadequate knowledge of the computer programming system in drawing the program. Other silent defects stem from the poor information storage and retrival system in the Nigeria Judicial operation. Unskilled and half baked technologists. In this area of study also impose a serious hindrance to the effective formulation of a good program. This is evident in the poor knowledge in term of computer appreciation by lawyers and personnel of the case filling commission, thereby giving wrong information with regard to this problem other administrative bottle neck in the casefilling system also caused serious drawbacks in formatting the program.
1.6 THE ASSUMPTIONS
In the law court in Nigeria, the problem at hand is the introduction of modern technology in achieving the aim so as to meet the required expectation of the society in the court. It is assumed that there are risks which they encountered which limits the achievement of their objectives which are the following assumptions:
- The use of short hand and long hand manuals in recording information which does not facilitate the job and wastes a lot time.
- Also as a result of poor storage facilities, there is always the problem of tear and wear of useful information from the files.
- As a result of old fashioned system of storage facilities of information it makes it difficult in retrieving them when needed which allows some cases to overdue in the court.
- It is assumed that in the corporate body like this they don’t use a computer which is now required in everyday activity which make it impossible for collection of accurate computer and timely information which leads to wrong casefilling taking.
- It is also assumed that technologist in this area are computer illiterates and no efforts were made for them to be trained on computer use in the law court.
Furthermore, it is assumed that reporting can be heard promptly with the use of a stenographic machine during proceedings in the court room recording to evidence better simplicity and productivity.
1.7 THE DEFINITIONS OF TERMS
LAW: It is a dynamic force for maintaining social order and preventing chaos in the society. It is difficult to imagine the existence of a community without law “HONGTON MIFFLIN” (1999) Introduction to law an the legal system, law makes courts and other officials of law and the legal system, law makes and other officials of the law help to preserve a harmonous society. General principles of English law defines law as a rule to which actions conform. Again law in the strict sence as rule of conduct imposed by a state upon its members and enforced by the courts.
