in conjunction with JURIX 2015: The 28th International Conference on Legal Knowledge and Information Systems
9-11 December 2015, Braga, Portugal
More and more (para-) legal data become available in electronic form, either from the official, authoritative sources (governments, public administrations, courts, notaries, but also possibly banks, insurance companies, etc.) or from third parties like (commercial) publishers, NGO’s, and universities. This may concern sources of law – statutes, case law, treaties – criminology and criminalistic data, statistical data on law application, etc. This opens up new opportunities for research into the collection and interlinking, descriptive and predictive analysis, and visualization of these collections of legal data. One of the techniques for doing this kind of research is network analysis, but others are needed to create the networks and to visualize them. The NAiL workshops are intended as a forum for discussion of these research ideas and developments.
