Abstract

Parties often appear in law courts with cases that have festered for long periods of time at great expense. This makes judges to face the challenge of overcoming impasses that frequently occur during adjudication. In developing countries, reports on previous judgments are kept piece meal in file cabinets and thereby giving edge to manual citation of court cases. This citation form had posed a great deal of problem such as, lengthened period between the time a case is opened and when accurate judgment is delivered, in the administration of Law and Justice. The advent of digital computers has made the routine use of pattern-matching possible in various applications and has also stimulated the development of many algorithms. In this study, a model that adopts Shift-Or Pattern Matching technique is proposed for citing authorities during legal jurisdiction. The model is implemented on Windows Vista Home Premium and WAMP APACHE as the web server. Record of court cases decided upon in the Ondo State High Court (OSHC), Akure between 2000 and 2012 was used to evaluate the performance of the system.
