A Marketplace for legal content, added value apps and personalized legal services. It is based on the premise that actors in the legal information field and developers are prepared to collaborate in an endeavor that is beneficial for them and their clients. November 11th, 2016 NB: The concept is originally created in 2011. Introduction

  4. 4. 1. The opportunity • Access to legal information can be improved: • Multiple providers, silo’s, overlap, incompleteness, long time to market • Packaged pricing, decrease in value for money, buy back squeeze • Paper product paradigm • Focus on professional, not on consumers • Use of legal information can be improved: • Limitations in topic based crosswalks between documents and document types • No actionable information for decision support and interaction/transaction support • No multi-perspective comparison of doctrines/evidence based analyses • Equal level playing field of legal practitioners can be improved: • Pre-competitive collaboration • Standardization in terminology, re-usable building blocks • Foundation for innovation
  5. 5. 2. The time is right • Legal professionals want to engage: • Creating content and services • Reap the benefits of open access and peer production • Governments stimulate open data: • Pre-competitive collaboration • Reuse • Sharing interpretation • Publishers struggle with innovation: • Limitations in topic based crosswalks between documents and document types • Providing content and services anytime, anyplace, any device (tablets/mobile)
  6. 6. 3. The concept • Create a Marketplace for legal information • Offer a collaboration platform for peer production and review of content (doctrines, articles, terminologies, apps) • Create (automatically) enhanced publications that link the content to sources of legislation and case law/jurisprudence • Create a Store for accessing, using and buying content on a free, pay per go and subscription base • Allow legal service providers to offer personalized services to users
  7. 7. 4. The Marketplace Transaction Co-creation Self publishing, collaboration, responding to requests Legal service providers Groups Practitioners Citizens App developers Institutions & Academics Add doctrine or article, refer to law Add building blocks (e.g. vocabulary) Download content and app results Consult professionalViews, notifications, downloads, referrals Subscribe, use free, pay per use Add legal apps Review, edit & approve Rate products Feedback Release
  8. 8. 5. The essential elements Content (Enhanced publications) (Personal services) (Value added apps) Organization (Governance body, domain teams) (Organizational contributors, Quality Control) (Support staff) Technology (Collaboration & Store services) (Self management) (Open standards) Commitment (Delivering and using content,) (Participating in organization) (Funding)
  9. 9. 6. How could it work? • Professionals affiliate themselves to a domain group (e.g. civil law) that has its own organization and workplace. They create doctrines and link these to the relevant legislation or case law. • Domain editors review the doctrine, edit links and content, offer feedback to the author – if needed - and release the validated doctrine for publication. • The released doctrines are linked to the public (free) available legislation and case law. • Users access a service, browse or search on topic in legislation and find all related doctrines. They pay per item. They can also use apps on a pay as you go basis. • Apps are developed by individual or corporate developers and members of an app group which exists of developers from domain groups. The apps are validated by an editorial group. • A steering group is responsible for the quality of service and collaboration. The group organizes events and represents the professionals in the contact with the platform provider. •The paid operators are responsible for logistics, administrative tasks, repository management, helpdesk and other support functions. Domain Groups Editorial Groups Apps Group Steering Group Repositories Operations Group Users Platform
