Attorneys of the "Ty i Pravo" company prelected for students


On October 31, lawyers of "Ty i Pravo" Company conducted a lecture "Online Justice" for students of the National Aviation University.

This comparatively new area of dispute resolution has already proven to be effective on trading platforms and in several foreign cyber courts.

In particular, in August this year the Hangzhou court began to work and became the first Internet court in China. Having been opened due to the increased level of cyber crime in the country, this court is actively considering cases, primarily related to fraud when buying goods in shops, copyright infringement, and the debt agreements in the network.


Why was the opening of such an online court in China so timely? Because according to statistics at the end of June in China, there were registered 751 million Internet users and 724 million mobile Internet users.

Also, the possibility to resolve disputes on value up to $ 5,000 through the online tribunal from June this year appeared in British Columbia (Canada). This is the first digital court in Canada, where small disputes are filed, negotiated and dealt with almost exclusively on the Internet. Phone and email services are available for those who do not have access to the Internet. The new online system also has a "researcher of solutions" that allows you to get started (it's free for any user).


The peculiarities of protecting rights through the resolution of online disputes on such large trading platforms as AliExpress and eBay, were also discussed, in particular if the purchased item does not meet the quality or declared characteristics.

The lively discussion was raised by the introduction of an online court in Ukraine, in particular regarding videoconferences, the opportunity for which appeared in 2012. Attorneys pointed out the difficulties in conducting such an online court. In particular, it is technical support (especially in district courts) and the need to submit a petition for video conferencing at least 7 days before the court session (at the same time, the parties should be warned about the court session 3 days before). Also, until  adopting relevant changes to the CPC it was problematic to get acquainted with evidence in real time during videoconferences.


To sum up, the participants agreed that the online court is a perspective way of resolving small-scale dispute cases, primarily from the point of view of a court fee (as an online court is free of charge) and the possibility of unloading the traditional judicial system for resolving administrative and commercial disputes, however, it is only at the initial stage of implementation in the world and in Ukraine, in particular.

Finally, the students got a lot of useful advices on the practical work of a lawyer and an attorney and interesting experience stories that became also a valuable information for 5-course students.
