Over the past six months, a series of workshops and symposia have explored the so-called Law.gov campaign, an effort to put all U.S. primary legal materials in the public domain. Next week, the series wraps up with a June 15 workshop sponsored by the Center for American Progress (which will be streamed live online) and then two days of events at Harvard’s Berkman Center June 17 and June 18.

On this week’s Lawyer2Lawyer podcast, we discuss Law.gov with two people who have been integrally involved in the campaign and who are both pioneers in bringing primary legal materials to the public: Carl Malamud, founder of Public.Resource.Org, and Thomas R. Bruce, director and co-founder of the Legal Information Institute at Cornell University Law School.
