What is MyOpenCourt?

MyOpenCourt is a product of the Conflict Analytics Lab at Queen’s University in Canada. Our tools are not-for-profit and funded by research grants. We believe that data science research can make a difference in the legal journey. While a computer algorithm can’t replace good legal skills, data science can help all Canadians determine whether they have a case, and reach out to the right professional for help.

How MyOpenCourtWorks

MyOpenCourt analyzes thousands of past cases to predict legal outcomes. We control the quality of our results by building our own datasets and algorithms.

It can be expensive for small businesses and employees to access legal help, so we automated part of the process with AI!

If our tools indicate you have a case, you will be given the option of talking to a dispute resolution professional at no cost to you.
