Caselaw as Data: Making It, Sharing It, Using It

We’re digitizing millions of historical U.S. court decisions at the Harvard Law Library as part of the Caselaw Access Project. But digitization is just the first step. What comes next is making that data publicly available, especially to the thousands of students, scholars and researchers with whom so many AALL members work. The possibilities are endless, as are the opportunities for librarians to lead their communities and institutions in exploring this data. This program will share what we’ve learned during the digitization process, highlight early experiments with the data, and look ahead at ways to expand access and use as broadly as possible in coming years.
