    NYLS Panel on 2/24
    Carl Malamud <address@hidden>

    Liberating Legal Information: The Law.Gov Movement
    A Panel Discussion with Carl Malamud, Helen Nissenbaum, and Nicholas
    Bramble
    February 24, 2009
    6:15-8pm
    New York Law School
    Room A700

    In 2009, President Obama's Open Government Initiative led to the
    launch of Data.Gov, an online forum where the public may easily find,
    download, and use Federal agency datasets.  Through Data.Gov, the
    administration seeks to expand creative use of the data and encourage
    innovation beyond the walls of government.

    Law.Gov builds on the success of Data.Gov by documenting what is
    necessary to establish a distributed registry and repository of all
    United States legal materials.  Public.Resource.Org is leading this
    revolutionary effort to collect briefs and opinions from the
    Judiciary; reports, hearings, and laws from the Legislative branch;
    and regulations, audits, grants, and other materials from the
    Executive.

    Join the IILP as we welcome Internet pioneer Carl Malamud, President
    and Founder of Public.Resource.Org, to discuss the Law.Gov movement
    and it's opportunities for citizens to help change the way we
    distribute America's Operating System.  He will be joined by
    distinguished Information Law scholars Helen Nissenbaum and Nicholas
    Bramble.

    This event is open to the public.  Please RSVP to Naomi Allen at
    address@hidden
