EUropean and National CASE Law and Legislation Linked in Open Data Stack (EUCases)
Date du début: 1 oct. 2013, Date de fin: 30 sept. 2015 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

EUCases will develop a unique pan-European law and case law Linking Platform transforming multilingual legal open data into linked open data after semantic and structural analysis. It will reuse the millions of legal documents from EU and national legislative and case law portals, and open access doctrinal work. The developed components cover the entire publication stack: we collect the data from institutional portals, enrich them using partner's or open source language technologies and ontologies, and publish the documents as linked open data in XML, with metadata and legal ontologies in RDF, to facilitate access, navigation, multilingual search and reuse.Two SMEs from the legal information provision sector will develop, supported by the research partners, a portfolio of innovative data analysis and language technology components to enrich legal documents, transforming research into innovative high tech value-added services and products in the SMEs' global market. Two end-user applications will prove the viability of the platform. The ConsumerCases online service will provide access to a multilingual collection of national court decisions linked with EU and national legislation and doctrine in the area of consumer protection law. EULinksChecker will interactively assist legal professionals while editing or browsing documents by identifying and establishing connections with regulations and legal ontologies.With 64% of the EU contribution for SMEs, the project responds to the EU's priority for the "establishment of a single European legal order" by the "availability of national databases on national court rulings concerning Community law". It exploits data from public bodies as envisaged by the PSI Directive and EC Open Data Communication. In a market dominated by few big players, it addresses the needs of nearly a million users: legal professionals (judges, lawyers, etc.) and legal information providers/publishers redistributing the linked open data.
