Law.Gov is an effort to create a report documenting exactly what it would take to create a distributed registry and repository of all primary legal materials in the United States.
On January 12, 2010, Stanford Law School Library co-hosted the first Law.gov workshop with Carl Malamud. Approximately fifty folks attended the event. The day included workshop sessions on building a national inventory of primary legal materials, copyright and legal issues, and technical issues.
The keynote for the day was a panel on “Law.gov: A Revolution in Legal Affairs.” The panel was moderated by Roberta Morris and included Anurag Acharya (Google), Carl Malamud (Public.Resource.Org) and Jonathan Zittrain.
We have created this site as an archive of all the content created for and during that workshop. And, also as a space to continue the dialog.
