Who are we?
BLAW Dockets Data Assets is the core team of engineers behind the BLAW docket research product ("docket" is the legal term for the official record of a court case). We are responsible for the systems that manage the acquisition of docket data from thousands of courts across the country as well as the systems that process, normalize, and extract higher level information from this data. We routinely tackle challenges due to the large number of disparate data sources we interact with (in most cases, court websites), the evolving nature of these data sources, and the free-form, dynamic nature of docket data. The main goal of our team is to provide a product that is capable of automatically and reliably dealing with these challenges so that our clients can perform their day-to-day tasks without interruption. An additional goal of ours is to continue to improve our ability to extract higher level information from docket data in order to get our clients the answers they need faster.
