According to the Action Committee on Access to Justice in Civil
and Family Matters, “There is a serious access to justice problem in Canada. The civil and family justice system is too complex, too slow and too expensive. It is too often incapable of producing just outcomes that are proportional to the problems brought to it or reflective of the needs of the people it is meant to serve.”
One approach to solving this problem is to provide people with the information they need to understand the law. Case law can be extremely long and diffiicult to understand. LegalEdison aims to help individuals understand these complex cases by summarizing them into shorter and easier to digest summaries.
Legal Edison is a research tool that helps professionals, students, and individuals automatically summarize case law and generate legal citations.
