Law Society BC Launches Juricert
Juricert Services Inc., a new service of the Law Society of British Columbia that has been endorsed by the Federation of Law Societies of Canada, helps users verify legal credentials over the Internet, reports David Bilinsky, the society's practice management advisor and staff lawyer (and member of the LTN Editorial Advisory Board).
A national program, Juricert plans to work with the government and vendors to help implement secure PKI-based legal filing. It provides "Trusted Digital Credentials" for proof of identity and professional status, to reduce Web fraud, and also allows lawyers to sign electronic messages. It currently can be used with PrivateExpresss private digital security service, to encrypt and transmit documents over the Internet using a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI).
