Title: (EN) USER INTERFACE FOR LEGAL CASE HISTORIES
(FR) INTERFACE UTILISATEUR POUR HISTORIQUES DE CAUSES JURIDIQUES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)


An exemplary legal research system provides graphical user interfaces to
client access devices, with the user interfaces specifically designed to
facilitate access to procedural case histories. Each interface is dynamically
customized based on the procedural relationships of a plurality of legal cases
to provide hyperlinks to corresponding case law documents. The hyperlinks are
positioned within indicator band of the interface to indicate corresponding
tiers of a court system, but also to mirror the procedural and temporal
relationships of legal cases corresponding to the case law documents.
Additionally, the exemplary interface includes case validity indicators to
signal the precedential value or status of corresponding legal cases. The
graphical user interface, in some embodiments, provides analogous access to
statutory information.
