Open legal data is a subset of open data that is getting more and more attention, and is a potentially game-changing resource for community advocates to do legal analysis at scale.

An open forum is part learning, part workshop, and part strategizing for impact / next steps. In this forum, we will meet open legal data and review exciting efforts to open data in law and policy contexts. It builds on the great conversation of our December 2019 Open Legal Data Workshop, sponsored by NYU CUSP.

Next, we will dive into a prime example, the the Harvard Innovation Library's Case.Law platform, before breaking out into teams to draft research questions that could benefit from (more) open legal data. We'll close-out the forum by identifying learnings and practices for making this information more accessible, usable, and scalable for NYC Open Data and the communities it benefits.

This event is run as part of NYC's 2020 Open Data Week with support from the NYC Mayor's Office of Data Analytics and Beta.NYC
