Law Community on

A key piece of the current administration's efforts to make more government-held information available on-line, in usable form, is the website.  Readers of this blog might be particularly interested in the "Law Data Community" on that site.  This is a portal to material that is not "data" in the usual sense, but rather a wide range of agency legal materials other than regulations: adjudicatory decisions, case filings from DOJ, OLC and agency general counsel opinions, and various agency directives.

Although the available agency material is for now somewhat haphazard -- including some that will be of broad interest and some that almost no one will care about -- and incomplete, there's a lot of good stuff here which is not in every case easy to find otherwise.  Material is steadily accumulating, to the point where the site is now a useful resource, and likely to be come more so in the future.  It's worth a look.
