Subproject 1 - Pre-Conflict Decision Tools: Orienting Litigants and Defendants

Start - 2018 | End - 2024 Duration - 6 years

The aim of this Subproject is to develop tools to assist pre-conflict decision-making. This includes any dispute settlement prior to an issue being heard in court. It also includes instruments freely accessible to all members of the public so they are aware of their rights.


Research activities

Case studies

Financial dispute avoidance. This case study focuses on condominium and small claims, with and without pathways. It explores Artificial Intelligence (AI) based approaches to recommendations (e.g., based on decision trees) and facilitates comparative analyses against current baselines.

AI-based legal education on dispute avoidance. This case study investigates evidence related to youth-specific disputes, such as first job and first rent, and the type of education materials that can be developed to target high-school students facing this issue.

 

Inventories

A Literature Survey on dispute avoidance will be constituted, with a focus on condominium and small claims, in order to support the first case study ("Financial dispute avoidance").

The working group will also put together a Survey of dispute avoidance tool, with a focus on cloud-based applications accessible from Web interfaces, and on the exploitation of AI algorithms such as decision trees.

Finally, the working group's activities will result in the creation of an Inventory of financial guidance pathways.
