The legal story of g0v

Isabel describes herself as “built-in” legal counsel to the Taiwanese Civic Tech organisation g0v — she’s been with them since its very beginning.

Right from the start, g0v has encountered many legal challenges. But it’s not just a one-way street: at the same time, Civic Tech and its associated community have fed back into the legal system, affecting the evolution of laws.
