CodeX Future Law Conference

May 20, 2016 | Palo Alto, California

What happens when you combine legal code and computer code? CodeX—The Stanford Center for Legal Informatics, a center jointly operated by Stanford Law School and the Stanford Computer Science Department.

case-study1CodeX’s mission is to develop technologies that empower all parties in our legal system: lawyers, judges, policy-makers, and the public at large.

These legal technologies help:

– People find, understand, and comply with legal rules that govern their lives;

– Law-making bodies analyze proposed laws for cost, overlap, and inconsistency; and

– Enforcement authorities ensure compliance with the law.

These advancements lead to the next frontier of legal technology, bringing new levels of legal transparency and individual empowerment. Computational Law CodeX ‘s emphasis is on the research and development of computational law—the branch of legal informatics concerned with the automation and mechanization of legal analysis.

At CodeX, researchers, lawyers, entrepreneurs and technologists work side-by-side to advance the frontier of legal technology, bringing new levels of legal efficiency, transparency, and access to legal systems around the world. CodeX‘s emphasis is on the research and development of computational law — the branch of legal informatics concerned with the automation and mechanization of legal analysis.
