OPENLEGALDATA.IO wins Faculty4Makers Challenge 2018

We are proud to announce that we won the faculty4makers challenge 2018 at TU Berlin!!! We are glad that our project has won your hearts.

The competition was organized by Technische Universität Berlin for DIY-projects carried out by students in their spare time outside university. Students were encouraged to present their own technical, engineering or scientific initiative, creativity and scientific know-how around the topics of electrical engineering and computer science.

We want to promote and provide free access to legal data such as legislation and jurisdiction. Following the principles of the open data movement, openlegaldata.io aims to increase the transparency of the justice system with the help of open data. For more detailed information follow the project website or have a look at its source code on GitHub.

German OLDP version goes online

After weeks of hard work we finally launched the German Open Legal Data Platform which is at the same time the first version at all. It comes already with all basic features: Overview and full text of most German laws, case files from the high court of Germany (BGH) and most importantly the API.

Having this first version on line and freely available, we can now collect user feedback and continue the development of the platform. Our next milestones are the publication of the source code on GitHub and the adding of more cases from other courts to cover the most import jurisdiction of Germany.
