Dr. Jesper Wittrup conducted third working meeting of judges on smart case-weighting system

24 July 2019 Dr. Jesper Wittrup conducted third working meeting of judges on smart case-weighting system

A working group of judges with different specializations and backgrounds met PROLoG expert Dr. Jesper Wittrup on July 18th to assess the level of effort associated with cases from different court levels.  This builds on the product of two earlier workshops, where the judges agreed on relative weights for all criminal, civil, and administrative cases. The case weights will be used to assess the current distribution of judges and court staff. 

This work was facilitated by a mathematical technique called Data Envelopment Analysis, which allows more accurate predictions from smaller datasets. As a result, the High Council of Justice will be able to assess the distribution of judges and staff among courts; assess the impact of future changes to the composition and volume of cases and more efficiently manage judicial resources. The draft final report will be presented in October, 2019.
