The Law via the Internet Conference is Back!

Lexum has always been deeply involved in promoting free access to legal information. As such, we also have strong ties with the FALM movement. In the context of the pandemic, the Law via the Internet in-person conference had to be cancelled. For the first time since 2020, a LVI conference will be held from November 6-8 in Vienna, Austria: LVI2023.

This year, the Conference is organized by the Centre for Computers and Law, Faculty of Law, University of Vienna and the Austrian Legal Information Institute LII-Austria. LVI2023 is held at the University of Vienna, Juridicum, Arbeitsgruppe Rechtsinformatik (Centre for Computers and Law) during the same week and place as the ReMeP2023 (Research Meets Practice) conference.

LIIs were – among others – very successful in developing and enlarging authoritative access to primary legal information in various jurisdictions. Still, much remains to be done, particularly in emerging economies and developing countries.

The main topic of the 2023 conference is: “Challenges and opportunities for free access to law, including those posed by generative AI/large language models”. During the two-day conference, speakers will discuss how scholars, researchers, legal practitioners, and information professionals use very large or complex data sets of public legal information to distill knowledge and develop public policy.

We invite you to consider submitting a paper, abstract or demonstration. For further information, please consult the attached PDF of the call for papers or visit the LVI2023 website.
