Institute of Legal Information Theory and Techniques

The Italian National Research Council houses an Institute of Legal Information Theory and Techiques (L’Istituto di Teoria e Tecniche dell’Informazione Giuridica — hence, ITTIG). ITTIG does research and makes tools available in the area of information technology as applied to law and public administration — an organized Slaw on steroids, perhaps.

It’s an intriguing site that will probably repay attention from anyone doing research in applied legal informatics, but which seems reluctant to give up much that’s concrete to the casual visitor. That said, there are some articles and PowerPoint presentations available from the recent conference, Legislative XML Workshop

What is clearly valuable about it, though, I think, is the thought it supplies that a similar Canadian insitute would be very good idea.
