Brian Harley, an LLM student at Columbia Law School, is publishing a series of posts (see Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3) entitled Semantic Lawyering: How the Semantic Web Will Transform the Practice of Law, on the blog of Columbia Science and Technology Review.
[Click here for Part 4, added 21 April 2010.]
The posts provide a useful and very basic summary of Semantic Web concepts, and their application to law, for those new to the topic.
For other recent introductions to legal Semantic Web technology, please see:
