Our esteemed Web Users of the Sierra Leone Judiciary Website, it gives me great pleasure on behalf of the Judiciary of Sierra Leone to formally and heartily welcome you to the website of the Sierra Leone Judiciary with solid quality content.
Moving forward, we have transformed and upgraded our website to make it user-friendly with regularly updated news on all our activities. We have also made our website a hub for your trusted information on all judicial and legal issues in the country. This upgrading is indeed unique because we have made sure that we also provide our Court users with weekly Cause List, Judgements, Rulings, Speeches and relevant Acts that will meet the demands of our users.
It is hoped that the website would become a conduit through which we should be able to showcase the activities and outputs of the Judiciary as we strive to ensure that the citizenry of Sierra Leone have access to improved justice delivery service.
As you visit our website for information on our Courts or our wide ranging resources, we do hope you would be able to use same to measure how far we have come to making our vision “accessible, fair and expeditious justice for all in Sierra Leone” a reality.
Ours is a job to settle matters of conflict peaceably between individuals. As the Bible assures us in Matthew 5:9, “Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God”, we hope that this beatitude endears us to work with the zeal and zest to making the difference in the Justice Service Delivery.
As you navigate through our website, we wish you an educative and informative interaction with the Court system, as we work to maintain an effective, efficient and independent system for administering justice for all.
As always, we welcome hearing from you on any suggestion improvements or concerns about the website or the Judiciary in particular.
