Qualitative Analysis Of Big Data in Case Law

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

INTRODUCTION:
Big data has been leveraging various decision making process in industries from diversified background. But its use in the legal industry is relatively new, mainly because most law firms are resistant to both change and new IT expenditures on unfamiliar initiatives. Many law firms or even established practising advocates are also hesitant in adapting big data solutions since they only possess data that is incomplete, inaccurate or most important its un structured for any analysis. The result? Wavering confidence in data and cultural barriers within the firm provide little momentum for firms to believe they can achieve ROI from big data solutions.

On the flip side of this “glass-half-empty” view is the current environment, where costs are falling and data collection technologies are becoming more effective. The result? Big data now offers tremendous potential for law firms to improve their entire business model, exceed client expectations and increase profitability. One area where big data plays a critical role is case management and preparation. Thousands of cases are filed annually in the various courts if India – and the numbers are rising. Each matter requires tracking information on jurisdiction, rulings, precedents, interpretations of legislation, witness statements, court logs, judge summaries, and more.

Other industries have, by and large, figured big data out. Retail, manufacturing and financial services are just a few of them. Legal will figure it out, too. That day is coming, but not fast enough for most firms and their clients. In the current market, empowered clients expect more from their law firms and are willing to leave when their needs aren’t met. It is ultimately the clients who will drive this change, along with firms which embrace modern technology. Invest in it and plan for the long term.

OBJECTIVE OF THE COURSE:

Case law research and analysis is a prerequisite in the legal profession, and the process of acquiring this skill set begins from the very first day of law school when one embarks upon the journey of exploring, understanding and applying the law in the practical scenario The ;law research courses offered on law hub courses is with an objective to enable and understand the systematic approach of research work pertaining to legal system-- case laws. Each course is an extended version the courses--sequential approact of research. The courses designed wih an objective to enable the students in understanding the systematic approach of researching a case law. Law students, on completing each courses develop a skill sets to preform the systematic approach of researc work. With each course various parameter are introduced making students aware of the qualntitative and the qualitative analysis inc ase laws.

QUALITATIVE ANALYSIS OF BIG DATA IN CASE LAW

This is and advance certificate course that covers the case law research programs. The courses that were covered in now included fixed data points associated with each case laws. This advance certificate course introduces the variable data points related with each case laws. This course further enhances the research skills with quantitative analysis of the law students. Futher more the most of the research programs are based on aquantitative and qualitative analysis of the data. This course enalbel the stindets to perform the qualitative analysis on case law. 

The introduction of the variable data points and elements in the case law lays the foundation stone of the qualitative analysis of the case laws. As the sundet research the case laws allocated the

The qualitative analysis of the case laws is an observational research is a type of descriptive research that differs from most other forms of data gathering in that the researcher’s goal is not to manipulate the variables being observed. While case laws being observed, the researchers do not try to control variables (as in an experiment), The case laws are deeply observed, observational studies tend to use qualitative data. In this case we are using the variable data points that is introduced in this course for  researcher of observe and explore the case law with use of qualitative analysis. The use of same with analytics is covered in the diploma course.

 

Qualittive analysis of Big data in Case law is a qualitative analysis. The researcher explore the big data (case laws allocated) and dif out the various paramenter that influence the final conclusion or the disposition.. This course offers introduces new area of research in case laws mainlt elements of the case laws and variable data points (qualitatitve analysis) with case law analysis.
