Challenge Description

Keeping up to date with the latest court rulings is an important task for lawyers who specialise in various fields. "Legal Lens" aims to simplify this process through an innovative online platform. This platform allows lawyers to register their specific topics of interest and receive customised updates on new court rulings that match their topics. By utilising semantic and keyword search technologies, the platform will ensure that lawyers have the insights they need at their fingertips to be better prepared for the changing legal landscape.

Our goal is to create a proof of concept (PoC) that tests the viability of this idea, uncovers potential technical challenges and demonstrates the clear benefits for lawyers.

GoalsπŸŽ―πŸ› οΈ

Moonshot 🌚We want to build a platform that automatically indexes new court cases, allows lawyers to register their interests and matches these interests with new judgements using semantic and keyword analyses. The result? Personalised email updates for lawyers, making it easier for them to stay up to date and respond to relevant legal changes.Realistic goal:

Realistic πŸ‘½ We focus on developing a simple customer journey, testing the reliablitly of matching interests with court judgements, clarifying initial privacy issues, highlighting the benefits of the platform and designing an email notification system.

User story πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ‘©πŸ½β€πŸ’»

Alessandra, a civil rights lawyer specialising in immigration and asylum cases, used to rely on reading quarterly magazines to keep up to date. After signing up for Legal Lens and selecting her interests, particularly asylum for women activists from Southeast Asia, she now receives instant email alerts about new judgements. This means she is always informed in real time and can improve her strategy and efficiency. Alessandra no longer has to trawl through magazines and can now respond more quickly to her clients.

Organization πŸš€πŸ‘¨β€βš–οΈ

Our challenge is all about team and exploration! We are calling on everyone - from legal professionals (students, lawyers or judges πŸ˜‰) to technical whizzes in the fields of data science, UX/UI and devs. to heroes from public administration and court staff.

  Brainstorming the interfaces !

  Requirements gathering, many data sources, time consuming to decide where to start. One side is vectorizing the search, the other feeding a language model to assign relevance.
