Though legal systems are among the oldest institutions in the world, they are far from immune to the aid that can be afforded by modern data processing technology, and Malawi has become the first country to offer legal technology to its citizens through the Open Trial app. The East African country will allow its citizens to get easier access to the federal justice system through the Open Trial app, which will be available on smartphones and tablets.

The main purpose of the Open Trial app is to keep national judicial systems as transparent as possible. It includes information on users rights, and it allows them to report instances in which they feel that those rights have been violated.
