Jurimetrics, safety and security
Jurimetrical analysis offers a systematic insight into the factors and decisions that play a role in legal decision making. With the assistance of jurimetrical research patterns can be identified and defined far more clearly than by using traditional methods. Jurimetrics can contribute to the security of society in various ways including increasing the transparency of the legal system, which can be made more predictable as patterns in judicial decisions become more apparent. Jurimetrical research may also increase the legitimacy of the legal system by exercising a supervisory and monitoring role over the parties and procedures involved. All these elements combined ensure that jurimetrics increases legal certainty, which is an important requisite for the security of society, but in specific instances, may also be used as a research method in specific areas of concern.
