2014 Law via the Internet Conference Call for Submissions
The event takes place in Nairobi, Kenya 30 September-1 October 2014. The submission deadline for abstracts is 15 April 2014:
"Submission of papers is invited on topics including but not limited to the following:
"Abstracts on other aspects of law via the Internet are also welcome. Abstracts purely on 'cyber law' or 'internet law' will not be accepted unless they relate directly to free access to law on the Internet. Abstracts should raise issues of theoretical or practical interest to others who are developing or using internet-based law resources."The conference brings together people from the Legal Information Institutes (LIIs) from different countries and continents that together form the Free Access to Law Movement.
The goal of the LIIs is to maximize free access to public legal information such as legislation and case law from as many countries and international institutions as possible. CanLII, the Canadian Legal Information Institute, and Lexum, which publishes the decisions of the Supreme Court of Canada online, are prominent members of the movement.
