Casebox was an open-source solution for collaborative litigation management, designed with human rights organisations in mind. Among other features, it allowed for:

  • document and records management
  • task assignment and tracking
  • document preview and editing
  • powerful search with filtering
  • creation of graphs and charts
  • forms with conditional logic

In 2020, HURIDOCS made the difficult decision to sunset Casebox in favour of expanding our database application Uwazi to meet this need. Read the announcement here.


Casebox was developed in 2011 by HURIDOCS and Ketse, with support from the Open Society Foundations and Oak Foundation. We are grateful to Ketse and everyone else who supported this application over the years — especially our partners in the human rights world who have used Casebox to pursue justice and accountability.
