CanLII, the Canadian Legal Information Institute, is organizing a hackathon at the University of Ottawa
this upcoming September 13-14:
"This conference and hackathon is for all, but should be of particular
interest to law students, legal professionals, the press and others
motivated to improve access to legal and public information."
"We want you to think about using the CanLII API and other data sets
related to build apps or services that improve public understanding of
- be exposed to and gain knowledge of data sets that include or could be mixed with legal information;
- develop innovative ideas and applications using legal data; and
- work towards advancing access to the rules and policies found in laws, court judgments and other information sources"
