‘Legal, Decent, Honest and Truthful’ [B1]


The aims of this session are threefold. The first is to introduce the JISC Legal Information Service (LIS) what it does, what it can do, might do and what it cannot do. The service aims to focus on the needs of those working in or with ICT, including web managers. The second is to provide an update on recent legislation in Information Technology Law and how it might affect FE and HE. The third is to give you, the ‘user’ of the service, an opportunity to say what you want from the service, what you don’t want, what else might we do and to ask questions on legal issues. The LIS is in its pilot year and feedback is very important to us. The first version of our web site is at http://www.jisc.ac.uk/legal/. Comments on the site from a professional point of view welcome (but don’t be too hard on us!)
