classifing of judicial information

Abstract

The article discusses one of the practical problems of information communication technology (ICT) use in the judiciary—classifying and categorization of legal information. This problem that plagues the judiciary in Lithuania is very important to solve in order to minimize the digital divide of the courts, increase transparency of judicial decisions, and increase uniformity of judicial practice and interpretations of the law. The problem is usually approached by applying standard ontological legal classification schemes from legal philosophy. However, such an approach is extremely demanding in terms of human time and labor. The practice of Lithuania is studied as an example of practical manifestation of the target problem. Suggestions are made that Artificial Intelligence- (AI-) based XML or Resource Description Framework (RDF) tools may be employed in order to facilitate such classification.
