Dear John,

I would like to inform you about the Summer School LEX2011 edition that aims to provide competences on legal drafting best practices interconnected with the usage of legislative XML standards for managing in digital way of all the life cycle of the law. The scholars and the experts of the scientific committee of the summer school belong to a consortium, internationally accreditated  in the domain.

It is the fifth edition and in the past we had the honor to have pupils from Official Gazettes Offices, European Parliament, Ministry of Justice ICT managers, Legislative officer chiefs, software houses that support the public administrations, researchers and academics, director of no-profit organizations involved in eGov domain.

So I think you could distribute this announce in your eGov and TGF mailing-list in OASIS. The OASIS members have 10% of discount.
They should send to me the application form mentioning their membership.

My best regards,
Monica Palmirani

Legislative XML Summer School LEX11
*Managing Legal Resources in the Semantic Web*
5-10 September 2011  Ravenna, Italy, Faculty of Law, via Oberdan 1.



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.

The Summer School is organized in two courses: 
** 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; 
** An Advanced Course on the higher levels of the semantic web technologies as
applied to the legal domain: modelling modifications, procedures and legal

LeX is an intensive, 6-day program, 8 hours for day, that requires
participants' total dedication and intellectual commitment. 

Good management of legal documents involves at least six aspects: 
** Drafting methods, to improve the language and the structure of legislative
** Legal XML standards, to improve the accessibility and interoperability of
legal resources;
** Legal ontologies, to capture legal metadata and legal semantics;
** Legal Knowledge extraction using natural language techniques;
** Formal representation of legal contents, to support legal reasoning and
** Workflow models, to cope with the lifecycle of legal documents.
