DLSU proposes to improve the Case Management System of HLAF; to help monitor and follow up on PDL cases

Sticking to the old and traditional means of storing stacks of papers containing sensitive information imposes risks to organizations and government agencies such as HLAF and the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP).

In partnership with De La Salle University Manila (DLSU-Manila), the College of Computer Studies (CCS), and DLSU’s School of Lifelong Learning (SoLL), a Case Management System is proposed to HLAF to track and monitor the cases of Persons Deprived of Liberty (PDLs).

A good Case Management System can facilitate efficient and effective legal representation for PDLs. This proposed system helps HLAF by closely monitoring and tracking their cases and can ensure that PDLs receive timely and appropriate legal assistance, thereby upholding their right to a fair trial and due process.

Additionally, an improved system allows for better coordination and communication among HLAF’s law practitioners; its staff, interns, and volunteers, ensuring that they are well-informed about the status of each case and can plan their legal strategies accordingly.

Furthermore, enhanced monitoring and tracking of PDL cases enable HLAF to identify systemic issues within the justice system that may be affecting the rights of PDLs. This data can be instrumental in advocating for legal reforms or policy changes to address these issues and improve access to justice for PDLs.

By improving case management, HLAF together with DLSU-Manila can uphold the rule of law, protect the rights of PDLs, and contribute to a more fair and effective legal system overall.

The Case Management System project with DLSU-Manila will run from December 2023 – August 2024.
