LEGAL EMPOWERMENT THROUGH INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY

 

At CodeX – The Stanford Center for Legal Informatics, researchers and entrepreneurs design technologies for a better legal system. CodeX’s broad mission is to create legal technologies that empower all parties in our legal system and not solely the legal profession. These legal technologies help individuals find, understand, and comply with legal rules that govern their lives; they help law-making bodies analyze proposed laws for cost, overlap, and inconsistency; and they help enforcement authorities ensure compliance with the law. All of these advancements lead to the next frontier of legal technology, bringing new levels of legal transparency and individual empowerment.
