LVI Conference

LVI 2020: Legal Information and Access to Justice


Law Via the Internet Conference

LVI 2020 Postponed

It is with regret that the Conference Committee has decided to postpone the Law Via the Internet Conference 2020, originally scheduled for September 2020 in London. The Committee intends to find suitable dates to hold the conference in 2021 and will make a further announcement once the situation is clearer. The Call for Papers is suspended and will be re-opened when the conference is rearranged. We hope you are all keeping safe and we look forward to meeting up next year.


This year's conference is hosted jointly by the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, University of London and BAILII (British and Irish Legal Information Institute).


The Law Via the Internet conferences are organised under the auspices of the Free Access to Law Movement (FALM).

FALM is a consortium of institutions dedicated to providing free and open access to law around the world.

LVI 2020

IALS and BAILII look forward to welcoming you to London in September 2020 for a programme dealing with some of the latest issues in legal information and technology in support of access to justice combined with the opportunity to see the legal heritage of London.  The conference is in the planning stage so bookmark this page and revisit to get the latest information.

The conference itself will take place at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies in the heart of Bloomsbury near to the British Museum, on Tuesday 15th and Wednesday 16th September 2020.  The conference reception and dinner will take place in the Old Hall of Lincoln's Inn on Tuesday 15th evening and we are planning to offer a 'Legal London Walk' prior to the conference on the afternoon of Monday 14th September.  The meeting of the FALM (Free Access to Law Movement) Secretariat by invitation will take place on the morning of Monday 14th.

BAILII is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2020 - come to London to help us celebrate!

Further information about conference themes will be issued early in the New Year together with a call for papers.
