These are the things we want to achieve.
The promotion of improved accessibility of primary legal materials, both in terms of their dissemination and their intellectual accessibility.
The promotion of research that seeks to utilise primary law corpora as a source of data and insight, particularly where the research aims to deliver benefit to society as a whole.
The promotion of a more coherent and collaborative approach to solving problems that sit at the junction of legal scholarship, design and technology.
To provide support for external projects where those projects engage ICLR’s traditional spheres of expertise.
The construction of a self-sustaining space to think, debate, test ideas and build.
The development of long-standing partnerships with governmental, private and third-sector organisations.
The values and principles underpinning the way we work.
Simplicity is almost always better than complexity.
A boring thing that works is better than an over-hyped “solution” that doesn’t.
Open is better than closed. So long as a project doesn’t involve confidential or other sensitive material or concerns, our work should be open by default.
Small, frequent steps are better than giant leaps that notoriously fail to deliver.
Collaboration is good. The more the merrier.
Is that an assumption? Challenge it!
