The metaverse can host weddings and judicial proceedings

A Singaporean government official said that legal marriages, court cases, and government services could all be done in the Metaverse one day.

Edwin Tong, Singapore’s Second Minister for Law, said at the TechLaw Fest 2022 on July 20, 2022, that even very personal, private events like weddings had taken place online in the Metaverse.

“It would not be unthinkable that, besides registration of marriages, other government services can soon be accessed online via the Metaverse.”

About legal services in the Metaverse, the Minister said, “no reason why the same cannot be done for legal services.”

“The pandemic has already shown us that even dispute resolution — once seen to be a physical, high-touch process […] can also be held almost entirely online.”

Minister Tong gave the example of a court case about an accident on a construction site that could be seen in three dimensions on a “single virtual platform” using augmented reality (AR) technology.

“You can put yourself into the actual tunnel or the oil containment facility to look at the construction dispute from the perspective of an augmented reality, representing the actual space.”

Minister Tong said that the use of these kinds of technologies wouldn’t get in the way of regular offline meetings. He said, “There’s always a chance of a mix of things.”

I think that this kind of integrated platform will make the whole process of resolving disputes easier, more effective, and in line with how the world is changing.

This year, the metaverse platform Decentraland held its first wedding on the Metaverse, with help from the law firm Rose Law Group and 2,000 virtual guests.

Jordan Rose, who started the group and is in charge of it, says that it was the first wedding ever held on a blockchain-based Metaverse.

In the meantime, South Korea’s government has already taken steps toward the Metaverse by spending $177 million to set up a platform where people can use different government services.
