Information Institute and Oyez.org are mass disseminators of free legal
information on the internet. Oyez alone receives over 4.5 million unique
visitors every year, and LII is the most linked-to legal resource on the web.
How were these sites created, and how do they function? What ownership and
control issues are raised when third parties like Oyez and LII distribute
information produced by the courts? What are the social and political
consequences of having the public’s knowledge of judiciary supplied less by
news media than by digital clearinghouses? Join us for a discussion of the
history, future, and significance of “free law”.
