LexCraft: A Wiki Space to Share Best Practices for Legal Information Systems

LexCraft, run by Cornell’s Legal Information Institute, is a Wiki where developers can “record, refine, and promulgate best practices for electronic legal information publication. It’s a place to note both big things (like the OAI4Courts standard, now under development on LexCraft) and small things (like … everything you [need to] know about US Code section numbering).”

“LexCraft is about crafting things with legal text.” It’s “a place to look for [or share things like] a stopword list for legislation in English, a writeup on a search engine specifically adapted for legal text, or the profile of the research group that developed it, or a bibliography of papers on text retrieval as it specifically applies to legal text. So it’s part cookbook, part collection of profiles and bibliographies, part code library…”

Legal information systems developers are invited to participate in LexCraft. To join, please register here. Thanks!
