For a litigation lawyer in Indonesia, it was common to wait several hours in court before the trial started. In many cases, the trial only takes not more than 10 minutes. We assume that the Supreme Court of the Republic Indonesia (the “Supreme Court”) finally realized that they have to build a better system to simplify the hearing proceedings by introducing the administrative dispute and electronic trial through the regulation of the Supreme Court No. 3 year 2018. The electronic trial or known as E-Court system which consists of E-Filling, E-Payment, E-Summon, and E-Litigation. The E-Court rules and regulations are subsequently refined with the enforcement of the Supreme Court Regulation No. 1 of 2019 (“Perma No. 1/2019”). Perma No. 1/2019 encourages the court to apply the electronic courts (E-litigation) system.
