Abstract

Case law citations are often lenghty and complex, despite the development of neutral citation standards. Within the Dutch judiciary a public index with more than 350,000 case law references is developed which makes the citing of references superfluous. This paper describes the realization of the index, the logical model and the interfaces. Some possible improvements are discussed, both in the logical model and in the way indexnumbers are assigned.

Keywords: legal informatics, case law citation
