The Assistance for the Development of Afghan Legal Access and Transparency (ADALAT) project is working with the Supreme Court (SC) to improve the way courts throughout the country manage and report their cases. The courts currently use the Afghanistan Court Administration System (ACAS) to capture data and statistics as well as track cases as they are processed at the courts. The ADALAT project plans to enhance that system and develop efficient procedures so that accurate and timely information about each case is readily available. This will include both operational and training support to the courts. In addition, the ADALAT project is planning to work with the Ministry of Justice’s Huquq Department to develop a similar case management system that will register, track and report on cases filed in that office. Ultimately these systems will be linked so that information can be shared.
As part of the ADALAT Case Management Team, the Case Management Specialist will provide support to ADALAT and to program counterparts (the courts and Huquq) by gathering information on current operational procedures, reviewing and analyzing that information in order to develop procedural improvements, assisting with implementation of procedural improvements, and measuring, testing and confirming the effectiveness of those improvements. In addition, the Case Management Specialist will help develop case management reports as well as verify their accuracy.
