Vibert et al.: Legivoc: Connecting laws in a changing world

Dr. Hughes-Jehan Vibert of the French Ministry of Justice, and Dr. Pierre Jouvelot and Benoît Pin of MINES ParisTech, have published Legivoc – connecting laws in a changing world, Journal of Open Access to Law, 1(1) (2013).

Here is the abstract:

On the Internet, legal information is a sum of national laws. Even in a changing world, law is culturally specific (nation-specific most of the time) and legal concepts only become meaningful when put in the context of a particular legal system. Legivoc aims to be a semantic interface between the subject of law of a State and the other spaces of legal information that it will be led to use. This project will consist of setting up a server of multilingual legal vocabularies from the European Union Member States legal systems, which will be freely available, for other uses via an application programming interface (API).
