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.

Watch the recording of the seminar
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.
