Every public authority covered by the Freedom of Information Law has a legal duty to maintain a publication scheme.
The purpose of a publication scheme is to make information readily available to the public without the need for specific written requests. Schemes are intended to encourage authorities to proactively publish information to develop a culture of openness and participation.
The publication scheme lists the information which is readily available to the public. The list is divided into seven (7) different categories of information to help you find the documents you are looking for.
This publication scheme commits the Judicial Administration to making information available to the public as part of its normal business activities.
The Judicial Administration will:
- specify the information held by the authority, which falls within the seven (7) categories;
- proactively publish or otherwise make routinely available, information which is held by the authority and falls within the categories;
- describe the methods by which specific information is made available, so that it can be easily identified and accessed by members of the public;
- list any fees charged for access to information described in this scheme;
- publish or otherwise make information available, in accordance with the methods and fees stated in this scheme;
- make this publication scheme available to the public;
- regularly review and update the information made available under this scheme.
