A New Section of Data.gov is Now Live: Law.Data.gov

A busy day for new online resources from the U.S. Government.

First, the launch of FOIA.gov and now a new subdomain of the Data.gov clearinghouse of data sets has also gone live: Law.Data.gov.

From a Tech President Article:

The site is, of course, a subdomain on the U.S. federal government’s data clearinghouse site Data.gov.” Administrative decisions by agency heads, boards, and administrative law judges, as well as advisory opinions and legal interpretations by agency general counsels are distributed across various agency websites and can be difficult to discover for the general user,” reads the site in explaining its reason for being. At launch, the site is hosting just more than 90 data sets — though they’re probably not what pops into your head when you hear the word “law,” as the bulk of them are records from Defense Department hearings and the like.

Direct to Law.Data.gov
