The State Chief Judge, Justice Priscillia Emehelu gave the advice during a training organized for Judges, lawyers and Judicial staff on Mediation skills in Multi door and Fast track court in Enugu.
Over the years, litigation has been the only formal system of dispute resolution in courts.
But recently, the Enugu State judiciary made it possible for litigations to gain unhindered access to justice, through the establishment of Multi Door and Fast Track system.
The Multi Door and Court House System simply means that rather than accessing the court through the door of Litigation alone the court would provide them other alternative doors such as negotiation, meditation, conciliation and arbitration, which would be conducted under the supervision of the court.
The Chief Judge of Enugu state, Justice Priscillia Emehelu said the purpose of the training was to expose the judges, lawyers and Judicial staff to the requisite skills.
Speaking on the occasion, the Enugu State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr Melitus Eze said the Government would continue to support the judiciary.
In a remark, a member of the Enugu State Justice Reform Team and a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mrs Justina Offiah commended the Chief Judge for encouraging innovation in the state judiciary and enjoined judges and lawyers to adhere to the system.
The Director, Catholic Institute for Development, Justice and Peace CIDJAP, Reverend Father Chinedu Anieke, expressed optimism that the availability of the new system would bring justice closer to the people.
The training was facilitated by CIDJAP, Enugu State Justice Reform Team and Enugu State Judiciary.
