The 2013 Law Via the Internet conference will take place in late September 2013 on Jersey, one of the Channel Islands (I admit, I had to look it up on a map).
The conference brings together people from the Legal Information Institutes (LIIs) from different countries and continents that together form the Free Access to Law Movement.
The conference “tracks” will be:
- E-Learning: distance, blended, open, mobile, gaming, MOOCing and more?
- Online legal information – starting from scratch
- Legal knowledge in the age of the semantic web
- Communicating our work: journals, blogs and other ways of publishing about open access
- Privacy v open government in legal publishing
- Emerging patterns of information access and usage
- Technological development and free access to law
The goal of the LIIs is to maximize free access to public legal information such as legislation and case law from as many countries and international institutions as possible. CanLII, the Canadian Legal Information Institute, is a prominent member of the movement.
