Big Data for Justice

The team at Development Data Lab has processed and de-identified legal case records for all lower courts in India filed between 2010–2018, using the government’s online case-management portal — E-courts. The result: charges, filing, hearing and decision dates, trial outcomes, and case type details of 25 million criminal, and 65 million civil cases. We have gone a step further and applied a neural network to identify gender of the accused, advocate, and judge for each case.
