Brussels is the new destination for the international Law portal which "is travelling" by five languages. On January 28th there is going to be the presentation of the project www.iusimpresa.com in the capital of the European Union: this working tool you can read on the Internet was created by the Observatory - Studies Centre for Legal Informatics of Lecce in Salento, in order to offer bibliographical references about Italian Law and Economics. The reference system is completely free.
Also Mrs. Adriana Poli Bortone (Major of Lecce and Member of the European Parliament) is going to be at the presentation of the website: after giving the support of the Municipality, she has undertaken to make the project known in Europe.
In Brussels Mr. Giorgio Mantovano (Chief executive of the Observatory) will explain the utilities of the portal www.iusimpresa.com: namely, how, where und when you can find all the data concerning a sentence, an article, a journal or a monograph on Law and Economics. The website is a voluminous database which the user can surf in five languages (English, German, French, Spanish and obviously Italian) by means of a search engine and many links.
The website can be updated even by the users. For example, an English student will be able to point out what you can find on a specific subject in the Library of Cambridge University, or an expert from Paris will read the list of all the monographs that have been published in Germany on a specific problematic area. This data filing and processing will be regularly updated, considering the many offers of co-operations which have been coming from Italy and Europe: among these are Publishing Houses, Universities, Economic Institutes and important institutions such as the Ministry of Justice and the "Ministero delle Pari Opportunitą".
At the Studies Centre of Legal Informatics in Lecce they are particularly proud and Mr. Giorgio Mantovano himself explains why: "the portal is a dream which is coming true, because it represents the concrete possibility of diffusing the legal and economic information on the Internet in five languages, and because it is a pilot project showing that an international undertaking can start from the South as well".
