How cases are listed significantly impacts access to justice and the right to equality. Listing processes in Indian courts are often difficult to understand – they are inconsistent over time and between jurisdictions and case types. Often matters do not get heard effectively on the day they are listed. Some High Courts list as many as 150 cases per day! The Listing Project brings together the various stakeholders in the justice system – legal practitioners, policymakers, litigants and researchers to co-create solutions for improving transparency, event certainty, and access.
Towards this end, DAKSH is launching a survey for lawyers, legal representatives of government entities, practising in the High Courts and the Supreme Court and litigants who have/had cases in these courts. This survey aims to understand issues arising from the frequency, design, and infrastructure of causelists. By understanding the challenges faced by stakeholders and uncovering best practices across diverse courts, this survey will pave the way for in-depth engagement with these critical issues.
Your insights are invaluable in this process. If you are a lawyer, litigant or a lawyer representing the government in High Courts across India or the Supreme Court, please take a few moments to complete this survey by the 8th of December. Thank you for your valuable contribution to this initiative.
If you have any questions about the survey, please reach out to email@example.com
