This Wednesday, Feb. 17, from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. EST, I will be moderating a webinar, “Mining Gold from Government Data.” We’ll be looking at how new technologies are making new types of government data – including key information about government regulations, judges, litigants and attorneys – available.

Our panelists include two companies whose tools are opening new windows into government information and two legal-information professionals. The panelists are:

  • Jean O’Grady, J.D., M.L.S., director of research services and libraries at DLA Piper and author of the blog Dewey B Strategic.
  • Lucy Curci-Gonzalez, M.L.S., executive director, New York Law Institute.
  • Gavin McGrane, J.D., co-founder and CEO of PacerPro.
  • Robert Dessau, founder and CEO of voxgov.
