Judicial Reforms



The Administration of Justice has been proactive in its effort to improve service delivery as can be seen in the reforms that have been introduced such as Judicial Case Management (JCM), Court Annexed Mediation and Court Records Management System (CRMS). The Small Claims Court Act which also prescribes the use of lay magistrates amongst others, has been passed by Parliament and the courts are due to be established in two (2) pilot sites, Gaborone and Francistown. In addition Magistrates Courts have specialized courts that deal with e.g. Maintenance and Traffic cases. A specialized Stock Theft Court is also planned to be established in the Magistrates’ courts during the course of this financial year (2009/2010). All these reforms are aimed at improving service delivery as well as fulfilling the mandate of AOJ of delivering Justice expeditiously.

Court records Management System

Judicial Case Management (JCM)

JCM is a system where the court and not other case participants control the progress of cases. Under this system, the court takes the responsibility for the movement of cases from the time they are registered, ensuring that no case is left idle from initiation to completion.

Under JCM, each case coming before the court is assigned immediately, upon registration to a Judge who will be responsible for it throughout its life. JCM places justice and the completion of the case above purely technical rules and introduces the Judge as early as possible to see to it that this is so. The system has tremendously improved the pace of litigation since its introduction in February 2008. The system is being implemented in the High Court’s with plans to roll it out to the Magistrates’ Courts.
