This 178-page report is the first deliverable for ‘objective 5’; it contains a comprehensive study on the policies and practices regarding the publication of court decisions within all 28 EU Member States and three European courts, with a focus on legal framework and dissemination practices, data protection and Open Data. The table of contents and the summary give a helpful overview of its structure and coverage.

 

‘Building on the European Case Law Identifier’ (BO-ECLI) is an EU co-funded project, constituted by sixteen partners from ten EU Member States. It started in October 2015 and runs for a maximum of two years.

It has five major objectives:

  1. An initial or continued implementation of the European Case Law Identifier within eight EU Member States (Czech Republic, Germany, Belgium, Greece, Italy, Croatia, Estonia and the Netherlands);
  2. The assesment of the current use of the standard, its alignment with other semantic web standards and the development of ECLI 2.0;
  3. The development of Open Source software for legal reference parsing;
  4. Spreading the word about ECLI within legal and technical communities;
  5. A comparative study on the publication of court decisions within the EU and the drafting of recommendations thereon.

A website at: http://www.bo-ecli.eu has been developed to describe the aims of the project and disseminate the deliverables of the project.
