Overview and Aim
The school aims at providing knowledge of the most significant ICT standards
emerging for legislation, judiciary, parliamentary and administrative
documents. The course provides an understanding of their impact in the
different phases of the legislative and administrative process, awareness of
the tools based on legal XML standards and their constellations, and the
ability to participate in the preparation and use of standard-compliant
documents throughout law-making process. In particular we would like to
create consciousness in the stakeholders in the legal domain about the benefits and
the possibilities provided by the correct usage of the Semantic Web
technologies like XML standards, ontologies, natural language techniques
applied to the legal text, legal knowledge modelling and reasoning.
LEX is designed primarily for officers of legislative bodies and other
normative authorities (at the national, international, regional and local
level), but its target group also includes clerks, drafters of normative
texts in the private sector, digital library operators, private publishers in the
legal domain, documentalists dealing with legal sources,administrative
directors, eGov managers, technical director in the public administration,
responsible of the dematerialisation in the public administration, technical
responsible of the document management content, students and researchers
working in legal informatics and legislation studies.
LeX is an intensive, 8 hours for day, that requires participants' total
dedication and intellectual commitment.
This edition LEX Summer School is organized in three main modules:
1. A Basic Course providing an introduction to the XML web technologies
and the basic level of the technologies for drafting and managing standard-compliant
legislative and legal documents (2 CFU);
2. An Advanced Course on the higher levels of the semantic web
technologies as applied to the legal domain: modelling modifications, procedures and legal
knowledge (4 CFU);
3. A workshop of two days for “Akoma Ntoso Tool Developers” focused on the
