In February 2018, JUDY was started as a capstone project by two Nigerians and one Ghanaiain at the Meltwater
Entrepreneurial School of Technology in Accra, Ghana. Our extensive market research in Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya,
Africa further validated the problem we’d identified: legal research is cumbersome. From this moment, the
co-founders set out to build a better search engine for case law atop the most comprehensive database of common
law case judgments.
JUDY Innovative Technologies Limited (“JUDY”) RC: 1530865 registered as a Nigerian Private Limited Company on
October 11, 2018. In January of 2019, JUDY received a seed investment from the Switzerland-based Meltwater
One-third of the world's population lives in a common law country. This means judgments from 80 countries can be
used to persuasively argue one's case in a court of law. However, this wealth of information has not been
full potential by the tools currently available.
This problem is further magnified in the African common law countries, whereby many relevant case judgments have
not been digitized, exist in silos, or exist as ‘dumb’ databases with limited search and discovery capabilities.
As a result, legal research takes a long time and lawyers often spend several days looking for precedent.
Our mission is to support the legal profession and the administration of justice by providing a law reporting
service in a convenient form and at a moderate price.
