A delegation of the Supreme Court of Kenya which was led by the Hon'ble Chief Justice Martha Koome visited India last week. They were invited to the Rashtrapati Bhavan where they met President Droupadi Murmu along with Professor SP Singh Baghel, Law and Justice Minister for State.
During the discussion, the Kenyan delegation applauded the ability of the Indian Judiciary for the use of modern technologies like Artificial Intelligence to translate its judgements. Justice Koome tweeted about this and also compared the challenges that countries like India and Kenya have to face. She also said that both the countries need to use modern technologies to make access to justice a reality for everyone and not just a select few.
In January, Hon’ble Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud had launched the initiative of translating judgements from English into regional languages using AI. The aim behind this was to make justice more accessible as the English language with its legal jargon is not comprehensible for 99% of the population. This move inspired several High Courts to follow the footsteps of the Apex Court.
