Lawyers to be trained for Virtual Courts

Training will be conducted to prosecutors, government pleaders, and lawyers around the country to improve their ability to conduct cases before virtual courts.


In order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, the subordinate and higher courts practically resumed functions virtually on May 11 under the Information Technology Usage Ordinance by the Court, 2020.   The Parliament has passed a bill on 8 July to turn the ordinance into an Act of Parliament.

To ensure the efficiency of the Virtual Courts, the Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs has planned to organize the training program through video conference in cooperation with the German Development Organization from 12 July to 24 August.

The training program will be conducted by local and international experts.

Law minister Mr.  Anisul Huq will inaugurate the program on July 12, after which lawyers including public prosecutors and government pleaders of Brahmanbaria and Narsingdi will undergo the training.

Lawyers from other districts would eventually be given training on the functions of the  Virtual Courts and the detailed schedule has also been prepared and published by the Ministry.
