Prishtina, 10 December 2022 – PEN Strategy Consulting Group is pleased to inform the public for the launching of a new initiative that will support the judicial system in Kosovo to further digitalize and sophisticate its internal system for case management and case filing system. Particular emphasis will be put in digitalisation of systems within the Commercial Court of Kosovo, a recently established entity within the judicial system. For this purpose, a whole new dashboard will be designed and functionalized under the name Commercial Case-law Data Access Dashboard. It extracts data from decisions of the Kosovo commercial instances of the judiciary – the Prishtina Basic Court Economic Department, the Court of Appeals Economic Department and the Supreme Court’s commercial decisions – and places them into categorized slots of analytical data. It extracts data directly from court commercial judgments currently sitting in Prishtina Basic, Appeals and Supreme courts’ archives. By first digitalizing those decisions, and making them accessible to potential commercial contestants, and by extracting major aspects of their data into analytical tools of a searchable engine, the Dashboard serves as an innovative, analytical data-driven platform that will make transparent and court-client friendly information pertaining to interpretative standards of commercial legislation by the courts’ practice in the last three to five years. Main specific objectives include further digitalization of judicial decisions across all court levels in Kosovo, and further sophistication of the already digitalized systems and publication of decisions in electronic database. The digitalization of courts in Kosovo remains important for several reasons, as it can significantly improve the efficiency, accessibility, and transparency of the legal system.
