(Jul 23, 2010) It was reported on July 19, 2010, that Namibia has embarked on a comprehensive new undertaking, the E-Laws Project, to make all its laws available through a web interface which, upon completion, is expected to improve access to Namibian laws for legal practitioners and the general public (New Website Contains All Namibian Laws, THE NAMIBIA ECONOMIST (July 19, 2010), http://www.economist.com.na/index.php?option=com_content&view=articl

). According to Tommy Nambahu, Deputy Minister of Justice, the Project will make all legislation and relevant cases from the High and Supreme Courts as well as international agreements and treatises available to users (id.)

Nambahu stated that the Namibian government has spent a substantial amount of resources in developing various digital platforms through which legal information would be made available as part of a wider network of E-services, among which is the Namibian Courts Information System (NAMCIS) (id.). NAMCIS, launched in 2008 on the basis of a successful pilot program, is a project to automate some administrative functions of the courts (including case-flow management and financial transactions).
