The rese­arch looks at how to measu­re the effec­ti­ve­ness of the Polish judi­cial sys­tem. This phe­no­me­non was asses­sed using an ana­ly­sis of the like­li­ho­od of appe­aling court deci­sions. The arti­fi­cial intel­li­gen­ce tools used in the stu­dy made it possi­ble to gro­up a lar­ge num­ber of court deci­sions by sub­ject mat­ter. In the gro­ups obta­ined, it was chec­ked how many judg­ments were appe­aled. It also ana­ly­zed what per­cen­ta­ge of judg­ments in a given gro­up were issu­ed by court depart­ments with a given spe­cia­li­za­tion. In this way, gro­ups with homo­ge­ne­ous legal cha­rac­te­ri­stics were iden­ti­fied, i.e. con­cer­ning indi­vi­du­al issu­es of civil, cri­mi­nal, fami­ly or labor law. In addi­tion, such gro­ups of rulings that address more than one legal pro­blem were also obse­rved. Final­ly, it was exa­mi­ned how hete­ro­ge­ne­ous case topics affect the like­li­ho­od of appe­als. The results sug­gest that civil cases are less like­ly to be appe­aled than cri­mi­nal cases. In con­trast, judg­ments with hete­ro­ge­ne­ous sub­ject mat­ter have an extre­me­ly high like­li­ho­od of appe­al. In turn, a bet­ter under­stan­ding of the legal pro­blems asso­cia­ted with the­ma­ti­cal­ly hete­ro­ge­ne­ous gro­ups of judg­ments can serve to impro­ve the ope­ra­tion of the court system.

A series of English-language meetings to present the results of research in the field of digitisation, conducted by researchers from European Union countries.

The seminars are an excellent opportunity to learn about topics undertaken at foreign universities and to discuss them with invited guests. Due to their interactive form, they are also an opportunity to build cooperation between Polish and foreign research centres. Past seminars can be found on the DELab UW website.
