How technology shapes our legal profession – now semantics


“Code is Law” – three famous words of Professor Lawrence Lessig back in 1999, when the Internet as the first important “cyberspace” emerged.

Major questions raised since then are still valid.

Semantic tools demonstrate how close technology and the legal profession are – or could be.
