About this Event

Houston Legal Hackers meets monthly to share ideas, explore innovations in legal tech, and develop creative solutions to some of the most pressing issues at the intersection of law and technology. Through social/networking activities, hackathons, demo nights, and workshops, we will identify ways of using technology to improve law, legal practice, and policy.

Sep. 27 Demo Night Topic & Speakers:

AuthoritySpoke is an open source Python library for managing detailed metadata about legal rules. It can be used for identifying and contrasting lines of authority in judicial opinions, which can help automate the process of checking whether opinions have been overruled. In the future, this tool will include features for searching for rules by topic, comparing doctrinal differences between judges, and discovering potential litigation outcomes.

Matt Carey is the creator of AuthoritySpoke. He has over a decade of experience in the legal publishing industry, and he's a graduate of the University of Texas School of Law. He also helps to support the civic data and open source communities as an organizer of Open Austin, which is part of the Code for America Brigade network.

We invite you to submit an app, platform, project, process, or prototype to present in front of like-minded people.
