Three months after France passed a law banning the use of public court data for the statistical analysis and prediction of judges’ decisions, France’s National Bar Council is demanding passage of a similar law that would apply to lawyers.

The Conseil National des Barreaux (CNB), France’s national bar association, adopted a resolution last month that reads in part: “It being specified that the identity data of judges and members of the court cannot be reused with the purpose or effect of assessing, analysing, comparing or predicting their actual or perceived professional practices, [we] demand that identical treatment be reserved for identity data of lawyers in the context of the dissemination of court decisions in open data.”
