The Cyberjustice Community in few words
The Cyberjustice Community is an open software community gathering users, computer scientists and services providers. It develops an open source project offering multiple software solutions and modules in order to improve access to justice through web services and judicial administration tools for implementation in the judicial world.
The Cyberjustice Community’s 5 goals:
- Encourage research and scientific development to bring judicial actors in the network
- Promote access to justice through software tools adapted to the judicial practice
- Decrease the cost for the courts and ministers of justice
- Improve the quality of legal open source software
- Advocate for interoperability and the use of open source standards in the judicial world
- Equality in treatment: Each member of the community must be treated equally.
- Transparency: Every member can access the information and the resources of the Cyberjustice Community through appropriate communication and through free accessible collaboration.
- Meritocracy: According to this principle, any member of the community can influence the future open source coordination and development. The more a member contributes, the bigger his influence is.

Software and modules
- Case management system: The Case management system is a web application who helps to manage the whole judicial process. Very felxible and adaptable, this system allows to open a judicial file and associate to it different users. It also allows to follow the process in each step.
- Interface de Salle d’audience (ISA) : ISA is a software module who uses technology during the trial (computer tools and audiovisual) and allows the presentation of the proof through audiovisual tools (access to the Case management system, etc.) for the actors during trial.
- Administration and configuration module: This module helps to configurate applications like security application.
- Authentification module: It is a general module of authentification which can be used with other modules. It allows for instance the authentification of witnesses during trial in the use of ISA.
