My Open Court. Open legal information. Open legal solutions.

What is MyOpenCourt?

MyOpenCourt is a product of the Conflict Analytics Lab based out of Queen's University,

MyOpenCourt is a free public platform that enables everyone to get the basic help they need to determine the strength of their legal disputes.

MyOpenCourt facilitates dispute resolution by analyzing thousands of past cases to predict an acceptable outcome. We believe that computer algorithms can work alongside legal skills to improve access to justice.

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