Description of the resource This final year undergraduate honours dissertation proposes that a socially-produced, structured information architecture, dubbed the ‘legal commons’, could usefully represent the mass of information contained in the Australian legal system. Such a system could allow for humans to better manipulate and comprehend the law using computer algorithms. The legal commons is proposed to be built using ‘social production’, a decentralised, self-selected production method, in which users collectively and cooperatively contribute to a project without financial compensation. The ‘legal commons’ would contain legal information organised by a defined structure, optimised for computer comprehension that would be free and open to access and modify.
