Staffan Malmgren, creator of the Swedish free access to law service lagen.nu, has posted Crowdsourcing Legal Commentary, on the VoxPopuLII Blog, published by the Legal Information Institute at Cornell Law School.
Mr. Malmgren’s post describes how crowdsourcing, involving the MediaWiki platform, was used to add legal commentary to statutes in lagen.nu.
Mr. Malmgren discusses all aspects of this innovative crowdsourcing project, including computer programming, planning, administration, author incentives, quality control, and sustainability.
This post should be of interest to the free access to law community and indeed to all who publish digital legal information, as well as to the legal social media community.
