Bonjour, INT-LAW!  If you are interested in presenting at the Law via the Internet conference, the deadline has been extended to April 2, 2012.  More info below.  As I mentioned before, Ithaca’s beautiful!  :-)  Librarians and other legal information specialists will be among the attendees.  Ciao, Lyo.

Two Days in Ithaca in October – Law via the Internet Conference


·         The 2012 Law Via the Internet Conference will be structured somewhat differently than in the past, and is designed to allow free and open discussion between attendees regardless of specialty or interest. Each full day will begin with an Opening Keynote address, followed by one morning sessions, a catered lunch, and three afternoon sessions. Sessions will be held concurrently and will feature presentations in five thematic tracks:

Track 1: The Promise and Reality of e-Participation
Track 2: The Business of (Open) Legal Publishing
Track 3: Free Law and Government Policy
Track 4: Application Development for Open Access and Engagement
Track 5: Data Organization and Legal Informatics

Each session is one hour in length, with one half hour between sessions to facilitate open discussion. Attendees are encouraged to switch between tracks and attend any presentation that interests them



·         The Law via the Internet community now reaches significantly beyond the academic community where open access to law began. LVI 2012 is meant to be a place for interaction and discussion among researchers, practitioners, and policymakers situated in universities, in private industry, in government, in non-profit settings outside universities, and wherever people who work with open access to law can be found.
