CaseBox – for litigation

CaseBox: manage documents, tasks in larger litigation teams

What is CaseBox?

The CaseBox project allows litigation NGOs to:

  • have an integrated solution to store documents related to court cases securely online
  • manage calendars and court deadlines
  • work collaboratively on court submissions
  • retrieve relevant caselaw from both their internal archive of cases and external caselaw databases.

CaseBox is available for use and can be downloaded on Github, but customisation and server setup require system administration knowledge. Therefore, if you are unsure, we suggest to get in touch with us.

CaseBox was made for litigation NGOs, but is flexible to accomodate others, too. Get in touch, if you want to learn more.

What will CaseBox do?

The CaseBox software will enable litigation NGOs to do the following tasks:

  • Store and access documents related to court cases on a secure web server.
  • Manage tasks, case calendars and keep track of court deadlines.
  • Work collaboratively on court submissions documents: drafting, commenting.
  • Manage the overall caseload, through dashboards for each lawyer and for the organisation’s legal director (which lawyer is working on which cases, etc).
  • Access their litigation data from multiple office locations, and any computer with internet access.
  • Manage client contacts and leads, and produce form letters for routine correspondence.
  • Do legal research and need to retrieve relevant caselaw from both their internal archive of cases and from external caselaw databases like HUDOC.
  • Analyse patterns of abuse using their case archive.

CaseBox can also be provided to NGOs at a hosted “software as a service” solution, including technical support, customisations, and upgrades. Please contact us, if you are interested in such a solution.

Taking action: next steps

  • CaseBox’ roll out has begun, but the documentation is currently in the making – hence best contact us, if you are interested. If you really want to get started, find installation documentation here.
  • You may also want to consider using a project management solution like BaseCamp, ActiveCollab, or TeamBox (open source) which offer similar functions, although they are not built with litigation in mind (no categorising of cases by violation, for example).
