Crowdsourcing the Law

Speaker: David Gold, Lawyer and founder of Spindle Law
Hosted by Professor Pierre Emmanuel Moyse

David Gold, a lawyer and founder of Spindle Law, a legal research site that organizes the law through mass collaboration, will speak and lead a discussion about approaches to, and the benefits and challenges of, crowdsourcing the law. What kinds of legal information can be profitably crowdsourced? What systems are needed to make it work? How should quality control measures be implemented to meet lawyers’ demand for reliable information? Why and under what conditions will lawyers contribute their knowledge? How should an in-house collaborative system, such as within a law firm, differ from one applied to public information on the open web? What does crowdsourcing the law mean for the legal profession and the future of lawyering?
