Do I need any special software to use eLodgment?
No special software is required to use in eLodgment other than a web browser.
Is there a limit on the size of the document I can lodge?
The size limit on documents and on attachments is 2mb.
What security measures are in place?
The first line of security is provided by the registered user process. Only law firms and other appropriately qualified professional users are able to access the system. The registration process means that the data in the system cannot be ‘crawled’ using an internet search program.
Once a registered user has logged in, the level of access depends on whether or not the registered user is also the solicitor on the record for a party in an action.
Where the registered user is a solicitor on the record, then, and only then, does the user have the ability to lodge documents on behalf of that party in the action. The exception is the document by which representation is first advised (memo of appearance) or change of representation is effected.
The eLodgment system has been configured so that once a document has been lodged, it is locked in the system so that neither other users nor court staff can access the system and change the documents.
