The digitalization of conveyancing processes has emerged as a transformative trend in the Zambian legal landscape, offering both opportunities and challenges for stakeholders. This literature review explores the impact of digitalization on conveyancing processes in Zambia, focusing on the opportunities it presents and the challenges it poses. Drawing on a comprehensive analysis of existing literature, the review highlights key findings and implications for policy, practice, and future research. It reveals that while digitalization holds the potential to enhance efficiency, transparency, and accessibility in conveyancing, it also brings forth concerns related to data security, legal validity, and technological readiness. Policymakers are urged to develop supportive frameworks to facilitate the adoption of digital conveyancing practices, while legal practitioners must adapt to digital tools and platforms to remain competitive. Future research directions include assessing the effectiveness of digital conveyancing platforms, exploring user experiences, and addressing ethical and legal considerations. By addressing these issues, stakeholders can harness the full potential of digitalization to modernize conveyancing processes and improve access to justice in Zambia.
