May 21: Join us for the Law.Gov workshop at
Registration is free. Register online at http://chicagolawgov.eventbrite.com.
More on this workshop:
The Law.Gov process consists of a national conversation occurring at major law schools throughout the country. A detailed agenda will be circulated closer to the workshop date. We intend to combine general information about the status of the Law.Gov workshop with a closer focus on specific topics. Three topics that will be covered in depth in this workshop include the Supreme Court of the United States, Access to Justice for the self-represented litigants and legal aid clients, and use of Open Access materials for e-casebooks/educational materials.
The Law.Gov movement was created by Carl Malamud to encourage the government to make its laws freely available to the public using open-source principles. These workshops are the opening dialogue leading up to a report that will detail exactly how we do that. Previous workshops have been held at Princeton, Cornell, Colorado, Berkeley, Duke and Stanford.
Lunch will be served.
