THE COURT

 ‘eCourt’ is the specialist electronic case management system for those involved in proceedings before the Court and Regulatory Tribunal.

Whilst eCourt has been tailored to the requirements of the Regulations and Procedural Rules of the Court and Regulatory Tribunal, the parties and their legal representatives are reminded that they must ensure that they familiarise themselves with the Rules before commencing or responding to proceedings.

In order to use the QICDRC eCourt it is necessary to create an account by clicking on the ‘Create Account Now!’ feature online. Users will need to indicate their ‘Registration Role’ by selecting ‘Legal Practitioner’ or ‘Litigant in Person’ as the case may be. Users will then need to complete the required contact information and upload the relevant supporting documentation (identity / law firm registration / practicing document), undertake the security verification and click ‘Create’. The Registry will then consider the request and, providing all necessary information has been provided, approve the creation of the account. Next, users will be sent their log-in details by email which, upon logging-in for the first time, they will be required to verify and set up a new password. They will then be able to use eCourt.
