緣起.研究目的及內容/Origin

近年來,世界各國之政府或學術團體代表組成Free Access To Law Movement(FALM)國際聯盟,其宗旨在推動跨國法律資訊自由使用及免費共享,並合作開發多語共用搜尋引擎以及法律與社會資訊分享平台。設置於中正大學法律學系的「台灣法律資訊中心」,於201111月間榮獲AsianLII(亞洲法律資訊聯盟)推薦,代表台灣加入FALM國際聯盟,並經該聯盟會員一致通過推薦案,正式邀請TaiwanLIIChinese Taipei)加入FALM國際聯盟,成為第33個國家會員。

今年適逢中正法學法律學系創系20週年以及法律學系碩士班基礎法學組成立週年,台灣法律資訊中心(Taiwan LII)加入慶祝行列,與中正大學法律學系、日本法律資訊中心(JaLII)以及台大、政大、台北大、輔大、中原、東海、高大等校法學院共同舉辦跨國學術研討會,以「法律資訊與東亞法學」為主題,邀集外國及我國跨界學者專家蒞臨指導,並且進行專題演講及圓桌論壇,藉由跨國及跨界組織成員間的交流,促進法律資訊與基礎研究學群的知識分享及技術合作。本次研討會希望促成全球學術社群的結盟,以增進資訊交換之深度及廣度,提升比較法學研究的品質與能量。同時,藉由跨界專家學者的經驗與意見交流,檢視各種教學研究方法的理論與實踐,並形成東亞法學人才培育計畫的典範,以展望未來合作發展契機。

  本屆TaiwanLII國際學術研討會以「法律資訊與東亞法學」為主題,主要目的在邀集致力於建立東亞比較法資訊分享平台的專家學者,就法律資訊與比較研究之理論、實踐以及資訊科技與搜尋引擎之應用模型,展開跨國及跨界學術論述與對話。這一個為期兩天的知識饗宴,將邀請來自英國、澳洲、日本、韓國、中國大陸及台灣學界之東亞法學與資訊科技知名學者,藉由專題演講、圓桌論壇以及學生合作學習成果的發表,綜理各方累積之豐碩研究及教學成果,展開跨國、跨界專業者間與師生間的對談與交流,一方面宏觀比較法律與社會教學研究的新路徑,他方面展望建置跨國法律資訊分享平台的新方法。

 Taiwan Legal Information Institute (TaiwanLII) was initiated in 2009 upon the inspirations of the 1st AsianLII Conference “Building Capacity for Free Access to Law in Asia” held in Sydney.  Thanks to national & international collaborative efforts over 3 years, TaiwanLII has made 3 major achievements.  First is the official establishment of TaiwanLII as a research center of National Chung Cheng University (CCU) in June 2011 after 15-month preparations.  Following that TaiwanLII was honoured to assume the 41st membership of the worldwide Free Access to Law Movement (FALM) and become a supporting institution of AsianLII and WorldLII. 

    Apart from vigorous participations in international activities, TaiwanLII has since May 2012 worked closely with JaLII on a joint project to develop 2 sets of bilingual key-word-in-context databases (Taiwan Bilingual KWICs), one for national laws (http://kwic.law.nagoya-u.ac.jp/taiwan/), and the other for Judicial Interpretations (http://kwic.law.nagoya-u.ac.jp/taiwan_inter/).  Under the umbrella of this KWIC database, laws of Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Mainland China (at a later stage) can be cross-referenced (http://koyori.legal-astray.jp/dual/?action=dual).  The KWIC partnership is further strengthened with an open research platform “LawPack (packages of legal information)”, which is initiated to share organic and living legal information of East Asian Law & Society.  The common traits of language and culture among these four jurisdictions have attracted distinctive interests in cross-national research and teaching.  On the other hand, AustLII\AsianLII (based in Sydney) has long operated a comprehensive free access law database system which includes devices for searching legal information in multiple Asian languages. 

    In view of the exciting progresses, it may be the time to hold a conference to share fruitful inspirations in doing legal information and East Asian law.  Also, the CCU Law Department is celebrating the 20th Anniversary (and the postgraduate programme on Fundamental Legal Studies to complete its first year).  TaiwanLII thus takes the chance to invite congratulations from international partners and friends.  At the same time, the JaLII-led projects of KWIC and LawPack are at critical stages of comprehensive developments, thus the four-jurisdiction partners agree to assemble an official consortium under the witness of participants at this conference.  It is highly expected that friends of various disciplines and jurisdictions will congregate to share accomplishments of common interests and to make further commitments to work hand in hand.
