Cyberjustice Community


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

Main principles

  • 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.
