Legal Document Coding Services at Gracious:
Legal coding is a process of indexing or categorizing of voluminous documents for easy referral in a legal proceeding. In this process keyword data is collected from a document or summary of that document is made. This helps in minimizing the difficulty involved in reviewing the entire set of documents. For this type of coding Optical Character Recognition (OCR) tool is used which helps in creating a systematic database of voluminous legal documents. Apart from OCR, there are other methods of coding, such as subjective coding, objective coding, in-text coding, bibliographic indexing, etc.
Subjective Coding is a process where linking of legal interpretation is done to a document. It involves classification of documents as responsive and privileged and categorizes the documents based on separate legal issues. The process of subjective coding involves going through the legal issues and application of those issues in the facts of the case and also reading the text of the document, its relevance, identification of issues, summarization, confidentiality code, etc.
Objective Coding is a process of collecting or recording data from documents, such as date, author, recipient, type of documents, title, source, attachments, person’s connection, exhibit number, etc. It involves data extraction from electronic documents and done from document image or text in case there lies inaccuracy in the metadata.
