CeRI: A Multidisciplinary Collaboration of Cornell Faculty and the Legal Information Institute

The Cornell e-Rulemaking Initiative brings together faculty and students from Computing and Information Science, Law, and the Scheinman Institute on Conflict Resolution. Working with the legal informatics professionals at LII, we consult with government agencies on, and engage in theoretical and applied research about, the technology and practice of e-rulemaking and related areas of e-government.
