Next Generation Legal Technology
openlaws takes legal information systems beyond closed and static databases to an open and interactive level.
The rule of law is fundamental to all democratic states. The sheer growth of legal documents and their complexity make access to legal information burdensome. The Internet has made it a lot easier to search for legislation, case law and legal literature. There are growing numbers of online commercial and government databases to consult online. Today, web technologies allow users to collaborate with each other, creating and sharing content. Personalized search and group profiles enable users to cater content to their needs. openlaws takes advantage of these new technologies in order to provide better access to legal information.
