A couple of posts ago I mentioned the Public Review of LegalDocML’s Akoma Ntoso v1.0. If you’re interested in legal XML and want to learn more about the Akoma Ntoso XML standard there are a couple of courses being offered at the George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia this summer.
The first is the Basic Course offering an, “introduction to Akoma Ntoso XML standard and to basic XML technologies for drafting and managing standard-compliant legislative and legal documents.” The second part, an Advanced Course, will provide, “in-depth analysis of the higher levels of Semantic Web technologies and of their application to the legal domain: bill, act, modelling of modifications, workflow, debates and transcripts, codification and codes.”
These introductory courses will take place from July 27-31, 2015. Registration is open until the end of June. This is part of the Lex Summer School which, like last year, will also be offering courses in Ravenna, Italy. The links currently on their site lead to last year’s information, but the dates are available: Summer School on September 7-11, 2015; and a workshop for developers on September 14-15, 2015.
