Vol. 38 No. 2 Canadian Law Library Review 70


Cornell University, located in Ithaca, New York hosted the LVI (Law via the Internet) 2012. The conference also marked the twentieth anniversary of the LIIs (Legal Information Institutes) of the world, which have grown exponentially. The anniversary was not a cake-eating celebration but a two-day deliberation with members of an open access society who have been striving to make legal information freely available on the Internet. Many of the speakers at the sessions shared their experiences from the different projects they have been working on over the past twenty years or more, and the LIIs continue to improve. It was a great experience to see how many of these LIIs have grown, are still growing and are using technological advancements to make legal information freely accessible.
