Putting the Law Online, A Workshop about the Law.gov legal open government data project, will be held 2 April 2010 at Silicon Flatirons: A Center for Law, Technology, & Entrepreneurship at the University of Colorado School of Law in Boulder, Colorado, USA.
The conference is co-hosted by Silicon Flatirons, The Wise Law Library at the University of Colorado, and Public.Resource.Org.
Here is a description of the agenda:
At the April 2nd workshop, we will focus specifically on two questions of special relevance to the Silicon Flatirons and Colorado communities:
First, what does Law.Gov mean for state and local governments? What special challenges and opportunities do we face that we might miss if we were to focus only on the federal government? We hope to have members from every branch of the Colorado state government present to provide their thoughts.
Second, we will ask what broader access to the law will mean for legal research and social science. What new tools and studies might we expect to see after cases and laws are placed online?
Here are the conference speakers:
- Michael Bender, Justice, Colorado Supreme Court;
- Barbara Bintliff, Nicholas Rosenbaum Professor of Law, Director, William A. Wise Law Library, University of Colorado Law School, and Reporter for the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL) Drafting Committee on Authentication and Preservation of State Electronic Legal Materials;
- Carl Malamud, President and Founder, Public.Resource.Org;
- Paul Ohm, Associate Professor of Law, University of Colorado.
