Making justice data open and actionable for all

Access to open and actionable justice data has the potential to revolutionize legal research, legal services, reporting, policymaking, and advocacy efforts. It can basically help us build the Alexa for justice!

This initiative was founded in June 2019 to catalyze a data-driven future in law and justice by (i) championing the Open Data Pledge, (ii) catalyzing data and technology Commons for justice, (iii) advocating for open data with government authorities, and (iv) unlocking resources of all types.

“By far the best team I’ve ever worked with. They truly understood the look I was going for and completely nailed it!”

Taking the Open Data Movement forward

Summer of Data is a national 5-week program focused on bringing more law students into the open justice data movement. In the first edition of the Summer of Data Program, law students worked under the mentorship of Prof. Rangin Pallav Tripathy of NLU Odisha and Civic Data Lab to create a dataset that profiles the backgrounds of High Court Judges from across India.

OpenNyAI is a mission aimed at developing open source software and datasets to catalyze the creation of AI-powered solutions to improve access to justice in India. The initiative and its output is open source. The generated data-set, trained models, benchmarks and other intellectual outputs will be kept in public domain for anyone to use freely for non-commercial and commercial purposes under open licenses.

Data is power. Open data is public power. When government and researchers allow their data to be made public, it improves our understanding of the world and makes for better policy.
