Harvard and Ravel Law’s “Free the Law” Project

The Free the Law project involves the digitization of Harvard Law’s entire case law collection, which will be available for free on Ravel. After eight years, the digitized collection will be available in bulk to anyone.

The press release is here. Ravel’s announcement on its blog (and accompanying video) is here.

Further details were published on Harvard Law Library blog, Et Seq.

The New York Times article announcing the project is here.

Seton Hall law professor Brian Sheppard had a more skeptical take (as to the “access to justice” angle, at least) here.
