Law Data Workshop is a site providing some examples of Law Data Analyzis for lawyers based on new IT approaches. The objective is to demonstrate that legal data are much richer than what can be extracted by standard search engines techniques.

The first set of data analyzis which is available is based on the judgments of the United Nations Administrative Tribunal (updated18 November 2017) : this part of the tool is developed with Apache Lucene and Vis.js vizualisation software (network and timeline).


The second set of data is based on decisions of the Aarhus Convention Compliance Committee. The visualization tools are also based on Vis with PHP Lucene for search engine.


The third set of data is based on the analysis of the French constitutional court (Conseil constitutionnel) with decisions from 1958 to September 2017. The visualization tools are based on the Treant js library which allows trees presentations.


The fourth set of data is based on the CASS and INCA databases of the French Cour de Cassation : cases are selected on the basis of key-words proposed for important decisions by the Cour de Cassation. This work is done in collaboration with A. Gonzales (University of Aix-Marseille) in the context of a project supported by Mission "Droit et Justice". The project is developed in Angular (version 5) using  Apache Lucene and Vis.js vizualisation software


The fifth set of data is an attempt to create a vizual and audio environment based on cases of the European Court of Justice. It uses the p5.js javascript library with p5.speechlibrary and Tone.js library. The words are processed using the p5.particle library. Some sounds are loaded from Open Path Music Collection and the idea of Funky Shapes association of p5.js and Tone.js comes from polyrythmatic from Seth Kranzler.
