JURIX 2020
33rd International Conference on Legal Knowledge and Information Systems​
A Fully Virtual Conference

December 09-11, 2020

We are delighted to invite you to attend the 33rd International Conference on Legal Knowledge and Information Systems (JURIX 2020). 

For more than three decades, JURIX has organized an annual international conference for academics and practitioners, recently also including demos. The intention is to create a virtuous exchange of knowledge between theoretical research and applications in concrete legal use cases. Traditionally, this field has been concerned with legal knowledge representation and engineering, computational models of legal reasoning, and analyses of legal data. However, recent years have witnessed an increasing interest in the application of machine learning tools to relevant tasks to ease and empower legal experts everyday activities. JURIX is also a community where different skills work together to advance research by way of cross-fertilisation between law and computing technologies.

JURIX 2020 is co-hosted by the Institute of Law and Technology (Faculty of Law, Masaryk University, Brno) and the Knowledge-based Software Systems Group (Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Czech Technical University, Prague).


The full program of the conference is now online on the JURIX website: https://jurix2020.law.muni.cz/program
