Beijing Internet Court launches 2 new information systems
The Beijing Internet Court recently pioneered an online litigation risk analysis system and a laws and cases retrieval system.
The two systems can dig out the potential of e-litigation data that was generated from litigation and form a circle where the data can in turn service other litigation to provide parties and judges with better litigation experience, according to the court.
The online litigation risk analysis system formed professional element sets and extraction methods through knowledge models and data processes on legal terms and cases, as well as experts’ professional knowledge and practical experience, which ensures precise risk analysis and makes for a better fit with judicial judgment rules.
The system radically eradicates the problems of traditional document retrieval methods which are based on a large data pool, an over-general analysis dimension and scattered legal items. The new system gives users high-efficiency data analysis, reduces blind spots on information and improves litigation quality.
It can be accessed on the litigation platform of the court’s official website and so far has provided services 5,327 times.
The retrieval system is an assistance system which can provide litigants and judges with new concepts and vocabulary explanations, relevant laws or cases retrieval in the process of litigation, especially in a court hearing.
It allows judges during a trial to quickly understand the co-relations among concepts and their law application, and avoids their misunderstanding of the case due to lack of background knowledge of specialized vocabularies. It makes trials more likely to process smoothly by providing clarity for specialized terms.
For parities, the knowledge map provides them with free and professional legal and cases retrieval services and improves their understanding of technologies and the development of the internet. The system's similar cases retrieval function also gives litigants some insight into probable trial outcomes.
So far the, over 5,000 terms have been searched through the system by litigants and judges during court hearings.
