Making law freely available online: evidence from sub-Saharan Africa

Legal Information Institutions (LIIs) make laws, statutes, and case law freely available online in more than 50 countries globally.

Neil and Paul will present the results of a 2019 mySociety research paper examining the usage and impact of these websites in sub-Saharan Africa, and discuss how programmatic analysis of the repositories, now also being conducted at AfricanLII, can feed back into evidence-based policy development.
