Abstract (English):
The judicial digitalization and automation are currently at its final stage. This article focuses on the concept of digitalization in court. The author analyzed the documents that regulate the digitalization in the Russian judicial system and assessed its result, e.g., in the sphere of interaction with trial participants. The article clarifies the correlation between automation, informatization, and digitalization and describes the trends, stages, and achievements in the digital development of the judicial system in the light of federal targeted programs. The author believes that the terms related to the digitalization of the legal system still have a vague status because they exist at the intersection of the procedural branches of general law and information law. Automation makes it possible to monitor trials and prevent violations of deadlines. Digital information about courts and trials may encourage citizens for a more active interaction with the judicial system. Unfortunately, the digital transformation of Russian courts is at its earliest stage and has a long way to go. Eventually, modern technologies will improve the quality of the judicial system.
