The Legal Text, Document and Corpus Analytics workshop (LTDCA 2016) took place at the University of San Diego School of Law on Friday, June 17th. Also known as “Law & Big Data II,” the workshop was hosted by USD’s Center for Computation, Mathematics and the Law (CCML). IAAIL members Karl Branting, Ted Sichelman and Jack Conrad were among the workshop’s organizers.
Individual and organizational actions have social consequences that call for the implementation of recommendations of good conduct at multiple levels of granularity. For instance, government agencies identify transparency as a key value that promotes accountability, public participation, collaboration, and effectiveness. For firms, business ethics and compliance programs are becoming critical and, as the OECD reports, a growing number of firms issue voluntary codes of conduct to express commitment to values like legal compliance, accountability, privacy, and trust.
