What is it about?

Over recent years, we’ve witnessed the emergence of various platforms, predominantly in the commercial sector, that have already integrated certain elements of the Common Legal Platform (CLP). These endeavors demonstrate that the vision of a CLP is not an unreachable utopia; instead, it stands as a practical and achievable option for cultivating an efficient legal ecosystem. Our commitment is to ensure that the diverse contributions made by individuals coalesce into a unified CLP that serves the collective interests of all stakeholders. Through shared principles and collaborative efforts, we endeavor to shape a Common Legal Platform that advances the efficiency and effectiveness of the legal landscape for everyone involved.

How we do it

Our approach to the ‘Common Legal Platform – the Principles’ initiative is rooted in inclusivity and collaboration. We invite active engagement from all members of the Liquid Legal Institute to participate in a constructive dialogue. Your insights, comments, and expansions on these principles are not only valued but vital to the success of this initiative. We extend a special invitation to the authors of the second volume of the Liquid Legal series, Liquid Legal – Towards a Common Legal Platform, to share their perspectives. However, our call for input is not limited to our members; we welcome contributions from diverse stakeholders. To facilitate an open and transparent collaboration, we’ve made the ‘Principles for a CLP’ accessible on GitHub. Contribute to the discussion and evolution of these principles by engaging with us on GitHub. Together, let’s shape the foundation for a Common Legal Platform through collective wisdom and shared efforts.

Why we do it

Our commitment to fostering an inclusive and collaborative legal landscape propels the ‘Common Legal Platform – the Principles’ initiative. We recognize that a unified, shared understanding is foundational to the success of the Common Legal Platform. By inviting diverse perspectives and contributions, we aim to co-create principles that resonate with the collective vision of our community. Through open dialogue, whether on GitHub, via email, or within our MS Teams channels, we strive to ensure that the ‘Principles for a CLP’ embody the values, aspirations, and shared goals of all stakeholders involved.

Liquid Legal Summit 2024

Current issues such as decreasing enrollments, a lack of essential skills, inefficient processes, and digital disparities in justice indicate a deep-rooted crisis. Accelerated by AI developments, these problems particularly impact copyright and regulatory aspects of the legal sector. These topics will be discussed at the Liquid Legal Summit on July 4 at the Kameha Grand Hotel in Bonn, focusing on joint efforts to tackle these challenges.
