E-court, law enforcement, electronic trials


The breakthrough system called the e-Court system is one of the Supreme Court's innovations in facing challenges related to the development of human life as regulated in the Regulation of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Indonesia Number 1 of 2019 concerning Electronic Administration of Cases and Trials in Court. This system was created to bridge Indonesia's geographical constraints, make the justice system more in line with existing principles, and trigger an increase in public trust in law enforcement and justice carried out by judicial institutions as well as realizing justice that is based on simplicity, speed and low costs. This research uses an empirical juridical approach with data analyzed qualitatively and the research specifications are analytical descriptive. The research results show that the implementation of Supreme Court Regulation Number 1 of 2019 concerning Electronic Administration of Cases and Trials in several Religious Courts has largely been carried out effectively, the existence of e-Court has had a big impact on the progress of the justice system in Indonesia as well as realizing justice that is based on simple, fast and low cost. However, several features such as electronic summons (e-Summons) and electronic trials (e-Litigation) have not been fully implemented because there is still debate regarding legal principles. However, with the existence of this e-Court system, the judicial process is increasingly developing, so that it becomes a modern court that makes maximum use of digital information technology.
