Courts and other dispute resolution mechanisms


Building data and research to provide policy support for judicial systems reforms.

Data from courts and quasi-judicial tribunals in India is increasingly emerging as a powerful tool to study the functioning of the judiciary and the impact of enforcement of laws on the economy and society. Our research focuses on developing discrete data-sets from websites of courts and tribunals in India using a combination of skills in law, technology and economics. These data-sets form the foundation to understand and analyse the links between court-performance and observed economic outcomes in the domains of bankruptcy and company law.
