A request for comments — with submission deadline of 22 February 2012 — on a proposed charter for the OASIS LegalDocumentML Technical Committee — convened by Professor Dr. Monica Palmirani of Università di Bologna Dipartimento di Scienze Giuridiche «Antonio Cicu» and CIRSFID — has been issued by the OASIS open standards organization, according to an 8 February 2012 post to the email@example.com listserv.
According to the proposed charter:
The objectives of the LegalDocumentML (LegalDocML) Technical Committee (TC) are:
- to promote a common legal document standard (based on Akoma Ntoso-UN [. . .]) that promotes world-wide best practices for the use of XML within a Parliament’s, Assembly’s or Congress’s document management processes, within courts’ and tribunals’ judgment management systems, and generally in legal documents including contracts;
- to collect requirements from the community of the stakeholders who create, manage and use legislative and legal documents (editors, libraries, public institutions, tribunals, publishers, etc.) in order to extend and refine the standard;
- to promote growth of a community that supports the stakeholders in order to adopt LegalDocML locally;
- to provide technical specifications and documentation in order to support the developers of tools and software applications relying on LegalDocML.
For background information, please see Professor Dr. Palmirani and Professor Dr. Fabio Vitali’s recent article, Akoma-Ntoso for Legal Documents.
For more information on the charter or the technical committee, please see the proposed charter.
